I am going after the Albatron Ti4200 Turbo, it has a very good write up at 3DGuru. Anyone have any experience with it? Good? Bad?
My second choice will be a LeadTek

I have heard good things and bad things about the albatron. It has a good ratings as far as fps, and clocking. However, people have experienced quality issues with some of the Albatrons.
I have the Gainward 650XP, which is also a Ti4200 with 128mb. It has overclocking software, and rated #2 video card by Pcmagazine. And the card is about $20 more than the one you are thinking about. I havent heard many quality issues with the Gainward, and I am very happy with mine. These are my specs.
40 GB 7200rpm HD
Xp with SP1
40.72 Beta Drivers.
With this card I can still get 30fps at full res, with only 256 Ram. The downsize to this is that ground textures are sometimes blurry. However, 30fps is beyond what the eye can perceive and I am very happy with that.
Not to say that the Albatron is a bad card, it is in fact very good, but the Gainward is a good deal for a well rated card. Hope this helps.
