    really dumb question but why are you asking about last gen cards?

    why not go with something slightly newer?

    Maybe it's not for the main system? maybe it's for an older system that is still being used for basic applications? :)

    Yes, if you have checked out my other thread (for my new computer) it's much better things. I need this for something else.

    Raw performance is better with the GF4 ti.

    performance aside i would go with the nvidia because the drivers for that gen are more stable. compared to the ati drivers for that gen which i have seen a few issues with.

    and second thought would be that the ati is hotter than the Nvidia one but the TI is also hot too.

    what is the purpose for this card??

    The purpose is for my old system, which will be running linux alone, which my old Geforce card died, and I'm using onboard crap now. I think I'll go with the Nvidia
