    I haven't tested the Leadtech card before, so I don't know it's specs or if it's good or not

    but so far with the 8 cards i've tested if you want the best VIVO features the Asus V8200 Deluxe is the card to get

    for shear overclocking potential though and speed the Abit GF3 is the best

    as far as REGULAR gf3's go

    the Abit card also has a dongle with video in and out, but it's not as robust in that area as the Asus

    I got my Radeon 8500 for $203. Get the Radeon 8500, isn't it cheaper than the GeForce3? You'll love the image quality and the speed on this card. I heard Smoothvision works now, 1X-6X.
