Went to CompUSA to check out new cards. Visiontek GE4 Ti4600 is $400 and the PNY GE4 Ti4600 is $300...they seem pretty comparable side to side. I haven't been able to see any reviews on PNY's card but have read great things on Visiontek's. Anybody seen anything on PNY's card and is it work the $100 savings for the same Nvidia chipset?

Online at CompUSA and at my local store they are the same price. If you can buy
the PNY for $300, I would get it.

I will bet the store has it priced wrong and won't sell it for that.

The pricing is correct as Circuit City has the PNY Ti4600 for $300 as well. Has anyone read anything about the PNY card, is so, where? I'd like to see a benchmark comparison on the two...I've only found the Visiontek vs. Raedon 8500.

The PNY GeForce4 Ti 4400 is $299 and is a great card.

I think Tom's Hardware should do a review and comparison on PNY cards, something that hasn't been done in the past. PNY products offer great prices and inturn should draw a rather large consumer base, justifying the need for reviews of their products.

:smile: Is it a new feature or a defect?

THG, as with most review sites, only reviews cards that the manufacturer sends them. They don't make enough money to simply buy each and every card and test it.

I've used several PNY cards and they have been excellent, plus they have a LIFETIME warranty.

IF there is any performance difference between the two I'm sure it is minimal and not worth $100 more.

I have the PNY Geforce 3 ti500 and it is a good card. It's made by MSI.

That is a price error, or you got the cards mixed up. The Ti4400 is $300 though so thats where the mix up probably occured.
I have the PNY Ti4600 and its awesome, I get around 10008 to 10111 3D marks in 3Dmark 2001se with no overclocking at all. A comparable Visiontek with same CPU as mine (athlon xp 1800+) got around 9700 range, and the Gainward also same cpu got around 9500 range so I'm very happy with my card. I paid $355 shipped for it though so that was a big plus. Sure beats paying around $420-430 (when taking tax into account)

If my response is brief and vague its because the info you provided is too!
