Well, if you have the moolah -sure man, go for it.

I'd wait for the 4200s tho. But even then, I dunno; there aren't a lot of games that take advantage of all the features -the shaders. It's a damn shame really...

For developers, I'd suggest a Geforce 3 TIxxx just to get your feet wet with the shaders.

For everyone else, it's kind of pointless getting a card this powerful and then putting down a lot more $$$ on nextgen games. Unless, of course, you're a warez monkey. It also depends on what you're upgrading from. If you're upgrading from an old voodoo card -I say go for it. If you've already got some kind of geforce already in your box, I say sit on your hands. Unless you've got status as a [H]ardcore gamer then -by all means, go for it. Enjoy the nVidia demos, the shader benchmarks and 3DMark2001. And fast frames on old games/today's games.

As for 4400s, they're all the same ref design. Visiontek has a good record for their high-quality components (Samsung RAM). MSI, ASUS and Gainward are always trustworthy, but I'm not really sure what the difference is -it might be a modified fan; not sure. I think the only issue is the price. If you're looking to OC, I've heard good things about Chaintech, but you gotta add RAM sinks and a better fan.
