    Don't bother buying that card....Just got with the fx5700.
    Wiggo's quote "The fx5700 is what the 5600 should have been"
    I think i got that right, or you can go with a cheaper Radeon 9600.
    But do not buy the fx5600..:2cents:

    The things that really steered me away from a fx5600(non ultra) was the slow speeds and lower than expected framerates. Not to mention the terrable benchmark scores. In peticular, the up(down)grade I am refering to was from a ti4200 64mb 4x to a new fx5600 256mb 8x with no other changes, same 8x agp slot. Over 1000 drop in 3d '01. Also worse in 3d'03.

    I wouldn't trade any of my GF4 Ti4200's for one and my R9600P would absolutely kill it (as it does my GF4's).

    I don't know about the bad score in 3dmark03 because it does have directx9...which should score higher than the ti's :rolleyes2

    If this graphics card is that awful why is it charging more than the 9600xt?

    It's likely due to it bein' a VIVO model and the software package that comes with it (price does not always reflect on performance).
