    must be a typo - the File GL Z1 has 128MB of ram, and the X1 has 128 or 256MB

    looks like somebody got their decimal in the wrong place:rolleyes:

    Not on a firegl man :) At least well... I havn't used the newer FireGL's heh, but I ran a FireGL 8800 w/ 128MB DDR for the longest time in this p4 (and before that the dual p3) as a gaming rig, and 3dmark 2001se couldn't break 12000 oc'd to 3.325ghz w/ that vid card. Replaced it with the ti4200p turbo from albatron, and my scores are now over 16000 (last check... have since installed dx9, and 3dmark2k3 don't like my dx9 debugging drivers (stupid dx9sdk)).

    Keep in mind those are made for professional 3D apps and are not optimized for gaming. Most Pro cards will get toasted by a GF4 in games, simply because they're not designed to run games.

    If you want to game, either GF4 or ATI 9700 Pro Ya can't do better. Though the X1 with 256MB of vRAM might be worth looking at it your pocket is supper deep.

    I don't know where you can buy it from, but check newegg.com or go to pricewatch.com and use that.

    Though they're both US centric.
