    Its a good card NOW,

    But it had a resistor problem at one time. As long as you get one that has been already fixed, your golden. I had the same exact card, But for some reason My Asylum Ti4200 64mb with 4ns ram OC'd kills my gainward golden sample. Go figure.

    Yes it is possible, but unlikely, if you wanna risk your $120 you could try, but I think it is only a 50% success rate.

    but not a true 9700 (any version)... no 256 bit memory structure on the 9500.

    yeah, the mod unlocks the 4 pipelines and 256bit memory bus. the 9500NP/9700NP mod makes it a true 9700NP as they wer identicle except for a single resistor.

    the chances of finding one of the modable cards is very slim these days and the mods only worked about 50% of the time. the cards that are modable were the very first 9500NP's that came out, soon after they were released the new unmodable version replaced it.

    so what do you guys think is the best 4200 since the 9500 looks to be unmoddable(or at least not worth the 50/50 risk for me)which card maker makes the best 4200 bang per buck?

    I would try to find the MSI/Abit/ASUS/Leadtek card for under 120$. If not settle for a lower brand, paying more than that for a 4200 isnt worth it imho.

    I've heard good things about the new Albatron Turbo one... hear it can get past Ti4600 speeds easily. It is more expensive, but one hell-uva overclocker. Sorry I can't speak from personal experience though
