I have the turbo version of that card, and while mine hasn't overclocked as high as other people, it still performs well in games and has yielded me *almost* 13k 3D mark points at 305/655. I have *heard* that the non turbo version kinda sux. Do a search on "albatron" to read more...

o sweet. Does that OTES come in 128mb?

:edit: Will the 64mb on that OTES card cause it not be able to play doom3 and the upcoming games?

hear me out ..
beleive me when i say the 64meg 4200 is better then the 128meg
i spent this entire past week in review websites :p
trust me i think i know the color of every chip on the cards by heart :D
i like to take my researches serious ;)
64meg all the way
Better scores then the 128 and faster mem on it with higher overclocking capabilities.
enjoy it...
i certainly will :beer:
peace!

That's the card I have. I say shell out the extra money and go for the TURBO version. My memory is 4ns Samsung that freezes at 550 (no ramsinks). Have any more questions just ask me.

Oh you are right my bad... I was somehow thinking there was a 128mb version that was more expensive than the Turbo. I better lay off this white stuff... :confused:

No doubt about the OTES beeing the king of 4200 right now.
And it just looks so damn good ;)
U made the right decision!
But if the Alba Turbo was the same price it would make it harder to choose between them.
:beer: cheers

If u wanna save like 10 bucks find it on pricewatch
