    any suggestions of which company has the best ti4400? or if they're all about the same?

    i've been looking at visiontek's, and i like the software they put in with it.. i can get it for $500 cdn.. but i found an asus ti4400 for $450cdn.. is the asus any better/worse?
    any companies i should stay away from altogether, any recommendations?

    (im new to nvidia cards, i've been stuck with an ati p0s for almost 2 years)
     
  2. everyone i ask told me about a visiontek's, but im look at a estacy

    I'd recommend either Leadtek or Gainward, both make exceptional cards, often higher than the original specs.

    Whatever you choose you cant go wrong with them.

    www.techzone.com

    www.nvnews.net

    have good reviews of both cards.

    the leadtek ti4400 has two fans on it and a word of warning its pretty noisy,other than that i love it and u can easily overclock it to the default settings of the ti4600.
