The Video Card
This particular version of the Ti4200-8x card is designed for those who want workable performance at a minimal cost. It doesn't have any of the bells and whistles that some of the other models have, but then it really doesn't need them. As long as you don't have to output to a LCD type monitor, then this one should work fine for most needs.
If you look at the card, you'll see that there are few differences between it and the original Ti4200 model. This is because the main differences are hidden away. The Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) is a newer revision that takes advantage of the new 8x AGP standard and the memory is a bit faster. Beyond these changes, the main construction is the same as older models.
As I stated above, this is a budget model. Your ports are limited to a standard 15-pin CRT output and the S-Video port. Since I will be using a trusty CRT for my display, this works just fine. Nothing wasted here.
You'll notice that Prolink has taken a solid stand against heat buildup. The heatsink on this thing is huge! It covers the GPU and all memory modules on the front of the board. It also adds a new look that will do very well in a windowed case. Having good performance is important, but with case modding becoming so prominent it never hurts to look good too.
And just to make sure that the backside of the board doesn't get too hot, we also see some heatsinks placed on the memory modules here as well. There is no active cooling on this side of the card, but since this area will be in the vicinity of the processor HSF, there will generally be moving airflow in this area.
