thanks, from what ive beem seeing their performance varies greatly from benchmark to benchmark, sometimes theyll crush a Geforce3, and sometimes theyll barely beat out an MX400....

Where is the TI4800SE and TI4800? I recently got my hands on one. Its a good card. I know they are beefed up TI4400 and TI4600, but still... performance is good. I'll let you know how it performs if you are interested.

Sure, that would be cool. As far as I had heard however the 4800SE is a Ti4400 with 8X Agp and the 4800 is a 4600 with 8X Agp with no clock speed differences. If you had a 4400/4600 to compare with id be interested to see if there are any differences other than AGP bus speed.

Sorry, I don't have anything to compare with - but this particular card overclocks very well. I'll run another 3Dmark01SE and let you know how far I can get it.
