A 128mb VIVO Ti4200 for £120?

  1. A 128mb VIVO Ti4200 for £130 [inc. delivery]? is it possible?
    (Preferably a AGP 8x - don't they have higher clock speeds than the 4xAGP 128mb's?) - I only have a 4xAGP mobo.

    I've looked and found some contenders, but they lack VIVO...
    I would like VIVO, but I can live with just tv out + dvi :)

    Must be a UK online shop, and include VAT.

    I know the FX is soon to come out...how much would that effect Ti4200 prices?

    1. 128Mb Chaintech GT20 Ti4200 Ge-Force 4 DVi TV Out [ugly, and only AGP 4x - so 444mhz mem]
    - but about £118 with delivery - scan.co.uk

    2. DabsValue - [so inno3d?] GeForce 4 Ti4200-8x 128MB DDR AGP RP DVI VO
    - £122, probably about £126 inc delivery - dabs.com

    Now for the VIVO's ever so slightly out of my price range:

    1. 128Mb XFX Geforce 4 TI4200 8X VIVO
    - £128.29, probably £7.50 delivery

    2. DabsValue [probably Inno3d] GeForce 4 Ti4200-8x 128MB DDR AGP RP DVI VIVO
    - dabs.com - £131 - probably about £135.70 inc delivery


    Which of the above? Or can you suggest anymore?

    Thanks people :grinthumb

    I've also found:

    Connect3D RADEON™ 9500 128 + VGA DVI-I & Tv-out - AGP 8x
    - theoverclockingstore.co.uk - £135.11 - free delivery

    - would I be able to soft mod this card to a 9700?
    and how fast it be then?

    FYI AGP 4x is an effective 266mhz transfer, not 444mhz.

    I 444 mhz was revering to the speed of the memory - not of the AGP. The AGP 8x cards I think have higher memory clock speeds.

    well m8..

    i'd get the radaeon card if u don't have to have ViVO

    u can overclock it and it's much fater - not overclocked than the geforce 4 ti4200

    I think I will. I can get it, mod it to a 9700, then o/c to almost default 9700 Pro speeds = effectively the same performance for 1/2 the price.

    It better mod to a 9700, otherwise, I'm gonna be left with a slow card....
