This is MSI’s rendition of the 9800GX2 1GB. As mentioned before, there are no differences between all the 9800GX2 cards out in the market except the stickers pasted on the cards by the different manufacturers.

In the world of PCI Express graphics cards and more PCI Express graphics card, Biostar has not forgotten a small group of users who are still running on older systems with AGP graphics slots.
We have here the Biostar GeForce 6800XT 256MB AGP card. It is fairly simple with a small fan and no 4-pin molex connector. Display options are one VGA port, one DVI port and one TV-out port.
This card can be gotten for a reasonable price of $ 99 only.
Freshly out of the shipping boxes is the Leadtek Quadro FX 1700 512MB card. The nVidia Quadro series is design for professionals who are into designing such as CAD/CAM.
Warning: Purchasing this card would set you back close to a nice one and three-quarter grand.
The above three products could be found at Cybermind Computer House.
Powercolor offers their HD3650 mid-range graphics with 1GB of 128-bit DDR3 memory, while their Xtreme version of the HD3850 comes with a non-standard cooler by ZEROtherm. The third-party cooling solution would definitely help to achieve lower temperatures when compared to the factory ATI cooler.
Prices for the HD3650 1GB version and HD3850 Xtreme are $ 179 and $ 249 respectively at Fuwell Technologies.
