Default Which Geforce 4 to get?

I was looking around for a Geforce 4, can anyone tell me which one overclocks/performs best (obviously the 4600 at stock speeds but I mean after OCing).

I'm gonna pair this up with:

Barton 2500+
ABIT Nforce2 NF7
Raidmax case





Thanks for the help.




And can anyone tell me if they've seen a respectable site sell Ge4 Ti4x00's for about $80?

I don't have much money so anything above that is out of the question.

I like the BFG boards. I currently own a Gforce FX5900 ultra chip set on a BFG board. I havent had any problems with it and am able to run all of my games at 100+ fps.

A Geforce 4 5900? Those never existed, and probably never will.

go to www.tigerdirect.com and www.pricewatch.com
you are bound to find a good deal there i would personally go nvidia on it and not ATI becuz me and my friends had problems with ATI. but thats just me. try and find yourself a 128MB vid card at least. andythign lower wont do too great at running high end games. cuz when u run games, u want a lot of FPS =)
