Default Somebody stop me!!

Im planning to go to ati on their 9800 pro series for a card i can use for
at least 6 months fx series is a great disappointment to me been with
5200-f5700u and never got a smooth game through. The smoothest card i had
with nvidia is a visiontek mx400 still runs better than my 5200u +some in
gameability havent seen the 5900 but why waste more cash?

I“m playing NFSU, CoD, MaxPayne2 and my Point of View 5900XT is doing great.
V-sync on at 75Hz, 12**x 10**, activated 8xAA, 8xAF, all details on.
Had it OC for a while, too.
Got 6269 3Dmarks.
An exellent card in my opinion.

I am still running a ti4200 and it is doing excellent on most games still.

The 5700 ultra is a decent card and a worthy competotor to the 9600xt.
But for about $170-200 you can get a 5900nonultra which is much better than
anything in its segment. Additionally, it can easily be flashed to a 5950
ultra. google it for more info.

That way for $200 you get a card with an almost (a little less onboard ram i
think) the capability of a fx5950 ultra which is awesome...

I would stay with nvidia if i were you

just my $.02

I hear NV40 cards are right around the corner and will improve the DX9
problems. If you can wait till May, you can get something that will
probably smoke the new ATI products. Its currently all speculation, but I
have faith....

Strange..very strange. The FX5700U is tested very good, par with the
9600XT, atleast that is what benchmarks tell.

Of course getting a card to get stable to run on every system is...
theoraticly only 99% possible.

It seems your motherboard or setup doesn't likes nvidia cards..atleast
not FX cards.

Oh, yes the latest nvidia drivers are indeed not of the quality we
used to have...very badly!

I personly hope that the DX9 problems are not improved ( even more problems..eeeh )

And untill both NV40 and R4x is out we simply don't know!

fx5900 non ultras are about $180, quite a good deal. but I've seen
ATI brand 9800Pros on the shelf at Frys, new in boxes for $250.

Add fx5500 to your dissapointment,

I assume you mean 3DMark01? Depending on your CPU, RAM and junkware
on your computer - it should be twice that.

My Ti4200 gets just under 10,000.
