    Anyone have the Albatron TI4200 P Turbo 'Medusa'

    Im thinking of buying this card as it uses the same PCB as the 4600 and clocks to above 4600 speeds, also comes with some 3.3NS bga ram

    Gainward has a 4200 that is built the same way, and isn't a no name company (or a new one) never heard of albatron

    FYi...yes albatron may not be a household name to most users... but actually they produce very good products..

    albatron g4 ti series cards regularly clock in as among the fastest in their class...

    if you are getting a good deal go ahead and pop yer wallet for it :)

    if not sure about the cards... do a google search for albatron card reviews and look @ the benches...

    you'll be happy that you did...

    how much was it? that's the "turbo" model, so almost $200, right? if so, you shoulda just got a 4400.

    Gainward Geforce4 TI 4200 64mb w/ 3.5ns memory = $125
    friend has the card and no problems with it.
