    I bought a Aopen gf3 ti200 that had s-video out and a dvi port for $164. I have had it for 3 days now. It is advertised to have 5 ns memory. It comes clocked at 400 memory and 175 core and had overclocking tools to allow a max of 500 memory speed and 220 core speed. It runs fine at 500 memory 220 core speed. It seems to have a big aluminum heatsink and fan, the heatsink covers the memory. Since I have not seen another review of this card my rating is equal to what I hoped for and better than I expected.

    Asus carry the reputation for top quality, high performance video cards (and have done since the first TNT's came out).

    That'd be my first, second, and third choice. Then maybe Leadtek.

    I 2nd Gainward Sweet 2d and maybe one of the best overclockin cards out!

    Newegg Has the Gf3 Ti200 for $165. Wow

    Pny is looking good too but I have never used one to say forsure.

    Edit: Asus cards dont overclock well. Quality is good, but I wouldnt put them over most others. And the Asus MoBo wont make a differance in the world with the Asus video card. You wont gain anything buy going with an Asus Theme inside your box.

    Asus. I've had the Asus V6800, V7700, and now the V8200, all of them were rock solid. If you have a Asus mobo definitely get an Asus card, they work great together.
