    is it worth upgrading from a ti4200 to a 5900 non pro have seen a 5900 for 180 which seems quite resonable.

    any one no how far you can overclock these the card is a leadtek dual fan jobbie

    With my leadtek 5900 lx version, i oced from 400 to 500 and 700 to 800 with stock cooling. But i think i had to lower the core to around 480 because of freezing issues. I had a ti4400 and upgrade to a 5900 lx(value version) for 250 usd. I only improved my score by a 1000 in 3dmark01, so i am not quite sure if it is worth it. I am going to return it and get a 9800 pro this weekend. :cheers:
    Oh yea, 180..what money is that in? Because it seems cheap.

    it is 180 english pounds - went and bought it tonight scored around the 4900 3d mark on version 03 not sure if that is any good or not, certinaly more than the Ti4200 if i remeber correctly was around 1800 points so that is quite a big leap.

    dont no what to do with the card now keep or take back have got the memory clock upto 850 and the graphics clock at 400 seems pretty stable no artifacting but dont really understand how the leadtek software package works. have you seen it? it has 2d and 3d settings dont no if they stay on 2d on the desktop and change to 3d in game because they both have diffrent settings!!!!.

    also is quite noisy compared to the 3d blaster card spose it does have 2 fans

    I am not sure how to explain it. But for each settting, 2d (300 and 700 clocked) and 3d(400, and 700 clocked), i overclocked the 2d to 400 and 800 and for 3d, 480 and 850.
    I scored around 14899 on 3dmark01 and for 3dmark03 i scored 4800 or around there.
    And for the noise thing, i don't notice a difference, since i always have my head phones on, but when my computer is off..the room feels..CREEPY because it is to quiet.
    I believe all fx5900 come with 2d and 3d settings, overclock both.
    It is better than your ti4200 so just keep the card unless you find a better deal. :cheers:
