Have any of you guys & girls ever use/own a Leadtek video card? I'm looking to buy a GF3. Be as blunt as you want

I think I've already responded on another site .

Any GF3 will do, except perhaps for PNY's... get a Visiontek, they're the best for cost/performance.

Yup, first to reply too! They do not sell Visiontek here though

So are they all bad cards, or not bad cards

I've never heard of a card that was half bad and half not

Think that will be documented as a literal response.

1 demerit for you .

Or is it sarcasm... ?

Well, for confusing me as to which it is, you get another demerit Mr. Wisey Pants

OK, 500 posts in 32 days here and more elsewhere... I think my eyes need to be reacquainted with the back of their lids.

Here a review of the Visiontek GF3 ;

And a recent 3 card comparison;

For $250 for a GF3, they are a great card.

I've used and installed several Leadtek cards. I can find no downside. They're cheap and they perform well, w/ no failures that didn't have it coming. I saw one destroyed by a person who heard of OC'ing but didn't try to learn much before his first, and last, venture into OC'ing.
