I'm shopping around for a new video card for my pc and am utterly confused with all of the options and terminology! Some cards have the same name but with a "TI" attached to it, does anyone know what the TI stands for, and does that mean it's better or worse??

From what I've come to understand it to mean, is "Titanium". On the periodic table "ti" is short for "Titanium". On the NvidiaNvidia graphics cards it's more of a "marker" of sorts to mean that it's been designed to consume less power while giving better performance. It's usually on the higher-end versions of their GPU's, while they often attach "MX" to their lower-end cards.

Shhh.. dont tell anyone, but we also have a private forum area with the really good stuff, see?
