Default Urgent Advice needed on correct replacement

BlankPlease need some urgent advice. Our client has lost his display card due to lightning and we have to recommend to the insurance company the correct replacement. The insurance company involved will also do their own research and thus we have to be absolutely correct. The principle we have to adhere to according to the insurance policy is a "same and/or similar" replacement. We cannot find the same replacement and thus have to look at "similar" replacement. herewith specs on damaged card:

Please your urgent advice will be appreciated!

Thanks Chris for the quick response.

Unfortunately we cannot find a supplier in South Africa that can provide us
with a Ti4600 brand new. We may not replace damaged components with
secondhand components, but must be procured new. Thus we are left with a
decision between a few of the following options, namely:

1.) Leadtek® WinFast A310TD+256 nVidia GeForce FX 5600 (NV31) AGP-8X 256MB
128 bit DDR with TV+DVI+VIVO - Direct X 9.0+, Open GL 1.4

2.) Leadtek® WinFast A300TD nVidia GeForce FX 5800 (NV30) AGP-8X 128MB 128
bit DDR with TV+DVI - Direct X 9.0+, Open GL 1.4 (but this has no ViVO)

3.) Leadtek® WinFast A350TDH nVidia GeForce FX 5900 (NV35) AGP-8X 128MB 128
bit DDR -TV+DVI+Hareware Monitor+VIVO, Direct X 9.0

The insured wants to stick to Leadtek WinFast!

Which one of the above would be more or less (more rather than less!) the
same quality than the Ti4600 with VIVO?

I doubt the comments of people on a usenet group will carry much weight with
the insurance company, but here is my opinion:
The Ti4600 was the top-of-the-line card in the "4" series. The equivalent
card in the "5" series is whatever the top-of-the-line card, FX5nnnn, is. If
your list of possibilities is exhaustive, recommend the FX5900 (explaining
that your client lost the high end card from the "4" series and that nothing
less than a 5900 is a suitable replacement). That way, if the insurance
company counters, your client should end up with at least a 5800.
It's all a game where they try to pay the least they can.

Very simple...got to Tom's Hardware page and compare the benchmarks for a
Ti4600 and the FX series, choose the VIVO card closest in performance. My
guess it would be the 5800 range of cards, but your list doesnt show a VIVO
version from Winfast.

Since you have to stick with a LEADTEK.... And your previous card was
a VIVO edition, then you MUST go for the 5900. (Its about $250USD) -
when you bought your Ti4600 NEW, it was about $400USD.

if you look at any reviews, the FX5600 is SLOWER than the GF4-TI4200,
which is already slower than your card.

The 5800 is faster than your card, easily - but doesnt have VIVO...
toss it out.

Its their own stupidity to not allow you to choose another manufacture
to replace the card (which costs $75USD)... Only #3 has the SPEED
and Features that meet or exeed your previous product ON THEIR LIST.
