    Easy.

    But why 64mb? How cheap is it?

    The 128mb cards are under $100...

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

    Use the Ti4200. While you won't get all of the (half-assed) DX9 features with it, games will generally run much better than on the FX. The lower-end FX cards aren't worth touching for anything aside from desktop work and Counter-Strike.

    This is where my signature would go had my host not been such a Bandwidth Nazi.

    And if you're playing CS and using a low-end FX, then you deserve to suffer...

    Remember, they ARE fast for anything but games....

    Well... they *ARE* blazing fast....
    they can even keep up with high end cards...

    as long as you account for air resistance they should travel at about the same speed.
    If the stuff in glow sticks is truly toxic then why do they make so many flavors?

    Sorry man, the FX5200's are better in that case as they have small passive heatsinks, compared to the big boys larger, active ones. Considering the strength the average geek has in the arm, less weight = higher volicity.

    Excuse me?:no: :grr:

    I wouldn't have to suffer if low-end graphics weren't all I have. Maybe if I had a new PC or something *cough*
