View Full Version : Who makes this card????

Who makes this card, I found it on Ebay today???


Kinda interesting how different manufactuers are trying to redesign the coolers so that they are only taking up one slot instead of 2, if anyone knows who makes this, also, I was under the impression the 128 meg cards were 128 bit mem system but this claims 256 bit, basically what exactly is the specs for the Value, non and Ultra models, or can Manufactuers deviate from those specs, can they do a 128 meg Ultra, just wondering, this looked like a good deal maybe. I mean is there going to be huge differences in the 128 meg to 256 meg versions?

I do believe this is a Prolink. :)
Prolink Geforce FX5900 128MB to be exact.
And yes, this card does have a 256-bit mem interface

Do you think its any good then?

06-16-03, 07:48 PM
Thats a Prolink card. NewEgg is selling that same Prolink 5900 for the same price, $419 :)

Probably better to buy the card from NewEgg as you know they are quality company.

Although for that money I would never buy this card.

Not fast enough typing :rolleyes: They are probably ok. I have heard of them but never bought one of their video cards. It is nice looking video card tho. Hopefully it works as good as it looks :)

I think you would be much better off buying something like a 9700PRO. You save some money and get a good card.:D

Well I been partial to Nv but we shall see. Ati keeps popping up alot as a (quote) better card, so I dont know. More I keep reading up on this whole ATI vs Nv vs raw speed vs AA/AF makes me just want to give up on the whole damn thing, buy go something and be happy and done with it. What ever the hell I might end up with. Ok, thanks for your opinions

To tell you the truth, if you are looking for a card that will play the games you wanna play and do what you want it to do, a GF4 Ti4200 will do that. If you really want nice performance, I would get 9700PRO. That will do everything you want it to do and more. But don't look at all these posts and think that these cards are THAT much different. Don't get into the whole "Nv vs ATI" deal. They both make good cards which will perform well.

Im paitently waiting for doom 3 and hl 2, and want to utilize the dx 9 as much as possible, I also want a good framerate for the games, i have a fx 5200 right now wich plays everything I currently own just fine, its the newer games coming out soon, im just trying to figure wich card will be the best to have when those games arrive


06-16-03, 09:16 PM
Well, if I was you, I would wait a while until the games actually come out. See how they work and then you can see whether you need a new card or not. This would let some time go by and who knows...... maybe the prices of these cards could go down a bit. ;)
Just a suggestion :D

If you're not wanting to get a top-end card right now, invest $60 in a GeForce3 Ti200. Play around with that for a while until games like DooM 3 and HL 2 show up on the market, then invest in a Radeon 9700 Pro (which should be even lower in price) or splurge a bit and get the 9800 Pro. Those latter two cards will be more than enough for any DX9 games on the immediate horizon.

"Reg Price: $ 569.00"

Wtf?? for a non ultra? wth is an ultra going to cost then?

it says pixelview on the fan ?
could it be pixelview ?

06-17-03, 07:58 AM
Prolink and PixelView are the same thing.

06-17-03, 09:21 AM
If what you've got currently does the job, I'd seriously wait and see how these new breeds of cards stack up when tested with the final releases of those games you mentioned. Then you can make a truly informed decision.

in conclusion........ wait!!!!! :p

06-17-03, 10:52 AM
Yea, I dont wanna do the same thing like I did with the Voodoo 5 5500 and spend 399 again when the damn thing came out only to find it was a POS, dont get me wrong card served me well but I paid way tooo much for it at the time. I dont mind paying alot again but only if the cards really worth it.

Looks like a cool card, the cooler looks reall promicing, the best cpu coolers are the ones with massive fins, if you added a custom fan on top of that best, you could get some good results!
