the overclocking I mentioned before. We were able to achieve more than a 15% improvement
in the core speed and exactly a 15% improvement in memory clock. This translates
into a card with very good performance for a very easy price of just under $150.
Everyone recall that a high performance card was $250 and easily higher just a
don't hesitate recommending this card. Yes, the GeForce4 line has much higher
perorming cards available. But remember that these cards come in at $299 and $399
and there are a few "tuner" cards out there that are easily passing
the $450 mark. I don't know about all of you but I'm sure many of us find those
numbers hard to swallow. At $149 we find very acceptable performance that even
includes 64 MB of DDR memory and a very good TV encoder. WinDVD is included with
the unit as well as a harness that allows you to plug into an RCA video in or
VHS-C. This makes the unit very adaptable to using your computer to shoot DVD
movies onto your TV. It would be hard to believe much more flexability being packed
into a video card without the price being hurt.
