I have been looking for a decent 1/2 height AGP card for my LAN party system.

While browsing the other day I found a Elsa 628LP that was a GF4ti 4200-64mb DDR and supports 8x AGP.

Anyone know where I can find this card?

Thanks for being constructive and adding to the conversation.

I have been to ELSA's website the card isnt listed there. All they list is ATI cards.

Also you'll notice I didnt mention in the first post that it was a Gladiac. Something I thought might be relevant.

ummm, dude, you're not gonna find one, ELSA pulled out of the country, and switched to ATI chipsets, hit up eBay for a used one if you want one that badly...

nah. i knew ELSA employees and all. they were up the street from me for years in Sunnyvale, CA.

ELSA completely shut down. out of business. (they were german owned , california-run)

they specialized in nvidia solutions only. (great workstation solutions in their day. my first QuadroDCC was an Elsa card. luvt it)

anyways. over a year went by...then a whole new entity bought the ELSA name and not much more. they also went fully ATi.

all ELSA U.S. support was , i believe, handed to CreativeLabs. check that out. (however thats not usually indefinite but more often a one or two year thing)

their warranty was a whopping 6-years , so its probably still good if honored. (usually they contract that out or pay another company to just take it over)

ELSA ASIA is still going as they didn't work with ELSA Europe.
