    The RAM will do little to nothing for 3DMark (though actual games will have much faster loading times), and I can't see why you would ever get that card unless either a very good deal is available to you or you already own it. IF you're talking about spending fmoney to buy a new card, look for something else. But yes, that card would increase the score.

    The reason im getting the card is i dont want to get one off the net and my dad is getting it from his shop and there arent any better ones they sell apart from the 6800 ultra wich is over 320 and that is a bit much to have for an xmas present along with all the other stuff so realy the fx5900xt give a lot better performance than my fx5700 at a reasonable price pluss along with the current system and extra ram it shuld be able to run almost every game with pretty high fps i reckon. Besides its not bad to have built your own system like that from scratch at only 15 years of age is it so with the extra ram and the fx5900xt graphics card id be dead chuffed lol.

    I'd try to order it online as hard as possible, but I'm suprised they don't have something better than that other than a 6800 Ultra. There are about a dozen or so cards out now that will outperform that thing, more than half of which shouldn't cost more. But if that's your only option, go for it, because it will help a lot.

    Well they do have a better card in that costs just 2 more but it comes in the form of a saphire radeon 9800pro 128mb i mean ye ive heard its a good card its just ive allways bin an nvidia person the thing that puts me off about radeons is driver problems and game compatibility etc i dont know if these problems have been fixed now or not but i am into nvidia more just due to the limited amount of hassle needed and fully compatable with everygame realy.

    Compatability and driver issues have not been a problem for the ATI line for a few years. That is ancient history.

    So exactly how much of an advantage over the fx5900xt will a get with the 9800pro

    note:the gainward fxpower pack fx5900xt golden sample runs a lot faster than any of the other 5900xt on the market is it is an overclocked card when purchased that is the reason for the heat spreaders on the memory and the large fan and heatsink for the core.

    We can't really tell you how much better you'll get in 3DMark05, but you can look for people using the FX5900XT and the 9800 Pro and compare scores.

    Anyway, the Sapphire, if it's at all like mine, will overclock just short of 9800XT speeds with no case airflow and stock cooling, while a cheap aftermarket cooler and a single exhaust case fan bring it past XT speeds. At those speed, I'd take it over the FX5900XT any day. Nvidia's line at that level back when the 5900s were still fairly new was far worse than ATI's (meaning it still is). Nvidia is already replacing it with newer cards. Speaking of which...

    If you're going to stick with nVidia, go for a 6600GT, which is a bit more than an Fx5900, but noticably better than it and the 9800 Pro. Anything below that, stick with ATI. Up until the 6800 series, ATI was the leader for quite some time.
