    i was looking at the ati ones but for the price of these with the performance for price i can find one that works, is anyone sees something that can be ordered in canadian dollars that would be even better if it is a better performance but other than that what do people think of thses cards, what one is better

    Nvidia Ti 4800 ( 4600 with AGP 8X ) is what u want ..
    From those yu've listed I would choose Abit :


    1. ABit
    2. MSI
    3. Albatron
    4. Aopen

    I know that ASUS make quality cards, as well as MSI, not sure about the rest. It's really just a matter of preference.

    You must consider that performance differs from brand to brand .. Instead of you I would choose Leadtek

    Asus may be expensive, but they have some top notch graphics cards...that's what I'd go with. Not a big fan of aopen or albatron. MSI and Abit are good though.

    i'd say stay away from th aopen. i bought the agp4x version with VIVO and the standard memory (4ns) won't even go up to it's rated 500mhz. doesn't overclock well at all. but it was cheap.

    aim for one of the agp8x versions as the memory is 500mhz by default. i have the asus one (yes, 2 gf4 ti's) and it goes up to about 580mhz.

    the albatron p-turbo is sweet too, though. 3.3ns memory is good for at least 600mhz.
