The Enhanced Leadtek Winfast GeForce GTS
Chock full of good stuff...

It seems like every time you turn around these days, a leading manufacturer releases yet another new video card on the market.  Ever since the release of nVidia?s line of GeForce/GeForce2 GPUs, the introduction of powerful display cards has become commonplace.  With this ?Boom? in the market, we?ve had the opportunity to see some really exciting products.  But it is also becoming increasingly difficult for the buyer to discern which card has the right balance between features and price.  If money is no object, then there isn?t too much to worry about. If it says ultra, it?s pretty hard to go wrong.  But for those of us who think that ultra is only what dreams are made of, we need to be a little more selective before spending a couple of hundred dollars or more on a performance card.  

Well, we?re not alone. The folks at Leadtek have been thinking about that too.  With their latest release they are hoping to provide those of us in the ?middle-class? with a video card that gives the best all around performance for the dollar.  With an aggressive production rate that has yielded some of the better display adapters on the market today, Leadtek has made its presence known in today?s video card market.  This time around Leadtek has strayed from the normal reference design and the new Enhanced Leadtek GeForce 2 GTS was born.
