    i'm thinkin bout getting a 4200 128mb with VIVO... getting all the bells and whistles. those 3 brands are the cheapest, especially prolink and aopen. but i tried my hardest to find a review on either one and i can't find anything at all. wanna know if there were any issues with any of these, what speed memory they have (4ns or otherwise), and overclockability. anyone know anything?

    or maybe i'll just get a 4600 VIVO for like $60 more.

    what ever make, (don't know about Aopen), get the second edition one. 8x, do not get the 4x, if your mobo supports 8x!

    It should hopefully!

    *glances at sig* nope... 4x.
    besides, 8x hasn't been proven to offer any performance increase. there really isn't even a difference between 2x and 4x.

    after talking it over with my friends, i decided i'm going to go with a 4600 after all. i got an awesome job a few weeks back so the extra bucks aren't a big deal. }:>

    Yeah.. those Western Bacons are the shizzat.. I fully commend the people who work at Carl's Jr. They are awesome people.. and anyone who works there.. or wants to work there (cuz they're job at a warehouse sucks) is okay in my book..

    Did I miss something. Where does Western Bacon Cheeseburger come into this.

    taurus was just asking an opinion about certain video cards so that doesn't mean he is a geek or a nurd.
