    What ATI line of card would be comparable speed to a GeForce FX 5600 Ultra? I can get this card very, very, cheap so I don't want an ATI based card in this situation but I'm much more familiar with ATI cards, so thats why I ask this question.
    I need to know if this card can handle 1024X768 resolutions trouble free coupled with a P4 2.53 GHZ CPU running todays most system demanding video games.?:confused:

    How much better is the GeForce FX 5600 Ultra compared to the non Ultra?

    Does anyone have some comparabilitly charts links for video cards?

    If u really need it cheap then go for the 5600 ultra, but personally i think it would be wiser to spend just a little bit more getting a 5700 ultra or 9600 pro/xt. 5700 ultra is about on par with 9600 xt and much better than 5600. If u play more openGl games then go for Nvidia, Ati is better with direct 3d and also handles AA/AF better.

    Make sure it is an ultra. The fx5200 and fx5600 cards are both generally poor performers. And both are beaten by a ti4200 64mb. The fx5600ultra would be somewhere between a ti4200 and ti4400 in performance (closer to ti4200).

    I would have gotten a Ti4200 and clocked it up instead, same performance for a lot cheaper.

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