    Nope, do a search for 5600 an read the posts. Its an alright card, but an old 4200 O/C'd is better. nVidia products get good around 5700 and up.

    Depends, what did you pay for it? An FX5600 can run most games at 1024X768 with some eye candy

    Out here I've seen FX5600's going for $100-$130US new, and the 9600P is $150-$170Us

    IT depends, its hard to say. Theres so many variables as to say that it runs. As I said earlier, it can run most games at 1024X768 with none or some eye candy
