TerAngreal is testing the 5900XT from Chaintech ATM, it looks quite flashy, and performance wise the FX5900XT chip is good.. and with some luck you can overclock it quite high

POV used to have excellent OC cards with the GF4 series cuz' they used the 4600 reference board for the 4200 and placed faster ram on the cards but near impossible to get in Belgium.
When I was looking for an FX 5900 XT, I checked POV's site and it said 2.5ns memory modules.
I bought an MSI cuz I'd heard that they had 2.2ns memory modules on them. This wasn't entirely true; the card I got had 2.8 ns memory modules on it but I read later that they sometimes performed up to 2.2 ns specs ... luck of the draw, as it so often is...
