Internet is faster through Cable. Nvidia makes more money if they sell it to several companies to resell it with different names. A common practice in the part world.

Its a very good card, Its up there, as top of the line with AGP, cause I don't think anymore AGP cards will be produced some other AGP cards to look at are the x800 and x850 PE if you have the money.

If anything, the wireless will make your connection slower. Maybe nvidia doesn't display that because there are so many types of products they have. could you imagine if you were searching for nvidia and 1500 results pop up, kind of a waste. Also that video card you have there is a little pricy for it's features, give me about 5 minutes, I'll post you a better deal.

the first one is the better AGP card, for pretty high end games and videos, the second one has the same specs as the one you listed, only a heck of a lot cheaper. I have the second one, the BFG tech and I can play Doom3 on mine with out any lag, over all its a very good card for it's price.

Doom3 specs http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/ssistory...weekly/2690450

just to show you what doom3 required to play.

My fault, I didn't pay attention to the pci express issue, in that case the card you are looking for is a pretty good deal. Here is one more to look at before you buy, the core speed is a little slower but the will still work very good:

If you have the money and are looking for a very high end card, here is the one your looking for:
