takiwa said:when you have the 9xxx series out, competing with the 4600, and the NV30 just around the corner (as well as the rumored .13 micron 9xxx's), you would think this is a marketing ploy to sell the 4200 at a higher price than it's worth...slap a gold HS on it, add a red board, and throw in 2 or 3 decent games...voila! you got a $200 price tag! Their top priced card right now is $160 on NewEgg, and I see this one with 8X AGP, the new cooler and the game package selling for more than that. Is a Ti4200 worth that right now? JMO...
Hm, depending on the price.. that maybe just worth it for the games. but as agp8x isnt much of any perfromance gain, its more just of another way to get $.

...sure, any time is a good time to make money...even if the consumer won't see any real benefits from it for the next year at least...it may not be useful NOW but it has to get released sometime, and right now is as good a time as any in my opinion.
