I'm sure all of you know the awesome Newegg.Com ;) 

Anyways, they have quite a bit of different GF4 based cards, from companies like Asus, Gainward, MSI, PNY, etc.

Anyone know which one is the fastest/best for gaming? Right now I wont be buying the gainward because it's too damn expensive and has tons of crap I won't need.

i believe most, if not all, of the gainward cards are overclocked out of the box so they should produce better results but i don't know how it compares to the other cards when they are overclocked.

I am using Gainward Geforce4 PowerPack ! Ultra/750 XP Golden Sample 4600xp and I overclock as same as leadtek 335/775 which was review by Tom's "http://www6.tomshardware.com/graphic/02q1/020304/index...."

Either Gainward or Leadtek but surely leadtek got very high rate review when overclocking due to large heatsink. Why I go for Gainward because I like thier heatsink and red color.

Here's a 3-way comparison between Asus, Leadtek, and Gainward:

Basically, any Ti 4600 is going to perform about the same. And the Gainwards don't come pre-overclocked, as someone suggested. You just have to choose one based on price, included features, and possible overclockability if you're interested in that. But I don't think there's much overhead on the Ti 4600 for overclocking. I have the Chaintech version, which I got for $320. I like it for its looks and it performs great, but probably no better or worse than other versions.

The memory has some potential for overclock. The RAM is rated at 2.8ns which equals about 714MHz. That's about 65MHz above stock speeds. That's basically a sure thing because they are rated there.
