    VisionTech has a GeForce2 GTS-V card with 32MB DDR for about $60 at NewEgg.com. You cant beat that kind of performance for the price. I have no idea what the "V" means other than it is not their GeForce2 Ti card. It has the same specs as a standard GeForce2 GTS. They might skimp on the cooling and clock it slower, but I doubt it. My Inno3D GeForce2 GTS (about the cheapest ones out there) can run the memory from a default of 333Mhz to 400Mhz (410 with some cheap ram sinks). The core will only go from 200 to 210, but the performance is great. In Quake3 max quality I get 115FPS at 1024x768 (32bit). A GeForce3 would be betterr, but even the GeForce3 Ti 200 runs over $150.

    The V means it's clocked lower than a regular GTS. If Newegg says it has the same specs as a regular GTS, they're wrong. You could say the GTS-V is the GF2 Ti200. It's a great deal though since it's a sure bet to overclock to standard GTS levels and maybe slightly beyond.

    You know, I've seen some damn long descriptions of where people live, and I was just wondering how freakin' long of a location they actually allow you to write in here. Looks like it's quite a bit. Oh well, if the space is here I'll use it!!! :)

    GTS-V is the GF2 Ti200
    That seems pretty confusing, considering the GF2 Ti is clocked higher than a GTS, and a GTS-V is clocked lower than a GTS. How could the GTS-V be the GF2 Ti?

    You didn't read it correctly: I said "You could say that the GTS-V is the GF2 Ti200." Think about the GF3 line. You have a standard GF3, a Ti500 and a Ti200 clocked lower than the standard GF3. If you look at the GF2 line, you have a standard GTS and a Ti. Since the GTS-V is clocked lower, you COULD call it a GF2 Ti200... Get it now??
