Well, going to GeForce 4. Hmm, they List GeForce4 Ti, GF4 MX, GF4 Go.

GF4 MX is a blatant ripoff attempt as I said.  No doubt made by some
marktoid to increase sales.  GF4 Go you'll have hard time finding for
sale IMO.

Going to Ti section, and voila, 3 models.  

I misunderstood you a bit.  I would say they are basic models , 
while 3rd party manufacturers try to differentiate themselves, by
imagining flashy names and adding extra features, picking better memory,
etc.  Personally, I wouldn't like Seeing Leadtek GF4 Ti 4600, Canopus
Gf4 ti 4600, along with 40 other cards which just have different company
name on the box, being just relabeled nVidia reference boards.

Sure, send them both to me, I'll have detailed descriptions, reviews,
benchmarks, etc.  Always wanted to have dmitriyshardware.com
