is this a good choice ? [/B]
I dont know about that card. I dont like the way they keep saying "up to" for the speeds. I also think that the memory speed(4.0ns) is a bit higher than others. Look at other cards and see if the memory speed (ns) is lower. LOWER IS BETTER when it comes to this speed.
As far as your last post....I have read review after review about the Albatron GeForce4 Ti4680 being one of the best performing cards and beating out the FX5600s. I will see if I can find a link for you.
These are the memory specs for the Albatron FX5600 Series:
(these specs are not on the website, I got these from a rep at Albatron through email)
FX5600CP (128MB) Mem. speed 7.5 ns Mem. clock=287MHz
FX5600EQ (256MB) Mem. speed 5 ns Mem. clock=400 MHz
FX5600P (128MB) Mem. speed 4 ns Mem. clock=500 MHz
FX5600P Turbo (128MB) Mem. speed 3.3 ns Mem. clock=600
This is the Ti4680P Turbo card at newegg.
