What do you think of buying GF4 Ti 4200 128MB +DVI/TV-out (about 120euros)?
Can you reccomend any other card in this price range? Is there any
difference (except manufacturer label :) between no-name card and card made
i.e. by Gainward, Pixelview?

if you want to overclock cheap no-names cards are a no-go

The 64mb version is faster out of the box than the 128mb version. The
performance of the card does not dictate the need of 128mb... unless
you running 1600x1200.

MSI makes an EXCELLENT Ti4200 - ($75USD) that is almost SILENT.

Stick with: MSI, ASUS and a few other big names... Pixelview is not
considered "good"... Gainwards has some QUALITY issues lately, and
their NAMES are confusing so don't bother with them.

It sure is - I have the 64Mb model and can't even use 1600 x 1200
resolution because of the small and average 17 inch monitor. You have
to put your head inside the tower to hear the card making noise. It's
like a silent fart, you don't hear it but you know it's there. I
recommend it.
