A friend of mine got this card. The highest he's gotten it to was 290GPU and 620MEM. I think it could go higher, but he doesn't have good, heck fair, case cooling. Even though he says it's cool to the touch. My ti4200 128MB is at 300/590 and climbing. Turned my case fans down to 7w and started to see artifacts in 3dmarks. Once the fans were backup, no more artifacts. I'll try 600Mhz next week. Once I get to a halt I'm adding ramsinks.

Back to the card in question, I just read a review about this card. Link Notice that the GPU doesn't go to high. I got mine to 310 but had problems in certains games and had to clock back down to 300 for stability. If you do get the turbo, get 4 more heatsinks for the back of the ram. Link.

Good Luck!

I had the card you are asking about. Albatron claims ti4600 speeds, which were true when the card 1st came out. Now, most people can overclock to around 290/630 like mine did and no higher. In any case, I returned it and purchased one of the 1st 9500 Pros. Out of the box, the 9500 Pro was faster than the Overclocked P-Turbo. Now that I have it overclocked to 300/600 it is even faster. When AA or AF are turned on, there is no ti4200/4400/4600 that can come EVEN CLOSE.

For the money, get a 9500 Pro :)
