    FX5600 is mid-range in the FX series, and how do you figure that they cant be overclocked? I own an FX5600 and am running it at 385/690 from stock 270/550

    Most people have their favorites when comes to buying a video card.
    I had bad luck with an ATI R7500 (low end card), so I was thinking about going to nVidia for my next one.
    I didn't ! I now run an ATI AIW 9700 Pro....And I LOVE IT !!!! Awesome video card.
    nVidia has had some problems with the performance of their video cards lately (since the FX series), but they are improving as they go...

    IMHO, ATI still is the way to go (for now)

    wizard james : I would go for This 9600XT or This 9600Pro.

    My first choice would be the ATI R9600XT ! :2cents:

    Overclockin' a vid card depends a lot on the manufacturer and the memory that's used but an FX5600 isn't as good as an R9600P (even when both are overclocked) but the FX5700 will give the R9600P/XT a run for the $'s. : peace2:

    wizard james : Have you looked for some other stores in your area ?
    For example, here in Montreal I can get the R9600Pro for $222cdn. at Ordinateur En Gros instead of $332cdn. at CompuSmart

    If you and your Mom feel ok with ordering online, then you will also find a better price than at CompuSmart.

    Try this thread for a list of Canadian online stores. The 4th post (by Maxpowers) might intrest you. They are in Alberta.

    Try Macrotronics

    The 9600XT he is looking at will blow your 5600 256mb away without even trying. It does cost a little more though but its well worth it.

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]
    Ti4400 - 3DMark2001 [16,028]
