New Vid Card ????

I'm looking for a new Vid. card and thinking about the "VisionTek Gforce4ti 4400" 128meg has anyone heard anything bad or good about this card? I found it local for $167.us, good,bad, don't care?
Any thoughts about this card?

Rumors are that Visiontek is folding, so the warranty isn't promising, but the card is good and close to the nvidia reference (which means it will be a decent overclocker).

not sure if the 4400 is worth the extra cash over a 4200 though

If I were you, I'd get a Radeon 8500 for $88 and upgrade later once again for the difference....

MSI 4400's o/c very well & according to http://www.anandtech.com review it cools 10 degrees Fahrenheit better then the others.

My personal favorite is either the Chaintech SE or the Triplex cards due to looks....
