    I heard that the 4800 is better than the 4800SE....?
    Is that true?
    Also I found a 4600 VIVO with 8x support.....
    Isn't that the 4800?:huh:

    LOL I'm confusing myself now:(
    **/Me shakes my fist at Nvidia**

    Which ones's better 4800 or 4600 VIVO (Gainward)?

    HELP HELP HELP :D

    4800 = 4600 w/ agp8
    4800 SE = 4400 w/ agp8x

    so if you see "4600 with 8x support", i guess that would be the same thing as a 4800.

    and VIVO stands for Video-In Video-Out, which means it has built-in video capture capabilites. almost every other gf4 has video out.

    unless you pre-ordered a gf FX 5800 ultra you may not be able to buy it since it is not going to retail AFAIk...

    perhaps on ebay or something you might find it...

    a bit too rich for me... I'll hedge my bets on an r400 @ the end of the year and buy a refresh of that next year... my card is more than good enough to handle todays games...

    aye... I'm sticking with my gf2mx for now... the p4 and ddr ram im getting will better my fps for now, and when the 9800 comes out, if the 9700pro is a decent price, I'll get one of them :)
