GeForce 4 Compatibility: Not Unimportant
GeForce 4 Ti 4600 didn't fit in the slot on some of the boards. The IDE interface hampers a snug fit.
Compatibility to the latest available graphics cards turned out to be an interesting topic. We decided to use a GeForce 4 Ti4600 graphics card from MSI. Two factors were decisive: on the one hand, there was the mechanical compatibility, which not all of the 18 test candidates were able to offer, and on the other hand, there was the electrical operation with the motherboard. The latter is important because the GeForce 4 Ti4600 uses up a relatively large amount of power, thus putting a heavy load on the voltage regulator.
Test basis: GeForce 4 Ti 4600 from MSI.
Retail packaging of the MSI card.
