On the deals page, you mention the AIPCS deals, and they in turn mention you guys...but you can get that exact card for a bit cheaper if you search pricewatch. You can get that card for 197.75 shipped from either of two sites. (You can even get a $193 card from Albatron.) I've been looking to get a VIVO card faster than my Ti4200 (which doesn't have VIVO) for a while...and $200 is pretty cool. Any word on this card? Any recommendations in place of this card? And no...I do not want ATI.
Gainward GeForce 4 4800 Power Pack Ultra/750-8X XP golden sample uses the 4800SE-8X chipset. The 4800SE is a GeForce 4 Ti4400. http://www.gainward.com/c-2.html
Asus makes VIVO videocards.

I would highly recomend avoiding ANYTHING made by Gainward! It took me over a month to get an RMA replacement of a card that was recently discovered to have defects. When they finally got off their asses long enough to send my replacement, they sent a bad card. It was a refurbed unit, and as soon as I took it out of the bare bubble-wrap that they packaged it in, one of the capacitors FELL OFF! I finally got a brand new one from them, but they promised 2-day shipping & sent it slower than that.
I know I'll never buy one of their products again. Not just for their shoddy RMA proceedures, but for the fact that thay KNOW about the defect in the GeForce4 4200 /model 650 card and have not recalled the cards. I spent 4 weeks trying to find the problem until I happened across info on a website about this issue.
