Who ever said all boards have to look the same? MSI's Titanium cards come in different colors and use a different cooling solution, depending on model, so that mistaking one board for another very unlikely.
The models and their features:
There are also big feature set differences between the various models. The GF2 Ti's 5ns memory chips come without heatsinks, as is the case on most other GF2 cards, as they would serve only a mostly cosmetic purpose on these boards, anyway. The GF2 Ti does feature TV-In and TV-Out support, integrating all necessary connectors into the backplane, sparing the user the inconvenience of adapters.

Meanwhile, the Ti200 comes with large memory heatsinks, identical to those found on the Ti500. The green board also features TV-Out and a DVI output.
The Ti500 is chock-full of features. It offers TV-In and TV-Out (courtesy of the Philips SAA7108E), hardware monitoring including fan speed (Winbond W39L010P-90 chip), and 3D shutter glasses. This list of features rivals that of the ASUS Deluxe models, which retain the advantage of the more extensive gaming bundle.
MSI GF2Ti Pro-VT
There isn't much to say about the drivers: NVIDIA reference drivers spiced up with MSI's own tools. The Ti500 comes with additional hardware monitoring software.
