They are all about the same price just wanted to see if anyone had these cards on there system now and what they think, or if anyone had any concrete information on why 1 is better then the other.

I have a 9600XT (256MB) and it rocks. My first instinct is to go for the large RAM size, but if any of those has a 256-bit pipeline on it, I'd say go for it instead of a 256MB card.

I've used GeForce and Radeon cards and never had problems with either one, despite the bad rap Radeon drivers sometimes get.

I <3 NVIDIA Cards..

I'd go with the 5600 if you're looking for a not so top of the line card for a good price..I really cant notice much of a difference between the 5600 and 5700...

Didnt they do some major changing with the ram speed and corepro on the 5600/5700 from the 5500 version? I also remember reading an article about one of the FX cards listed above and how it didnt do so well vs the previous version? anyone else remember anything like that? or maybe it was an ATI card I read that ???? hell I dunno, Mad i'm sooo burned out over work! well im going to bed night all

really how much ping difference you talking about? I always thought ping was from mostly data packets sent via internet received by network card and processed and then your processor & video card did the local data break up and then sends data back to server. Never knew a video card could make a HUGE difference in ping? Confused

Which is ALWAYS worth the significant amount invested in a video card. The moral here is that if you can gain 1ms or 2ms for only $300.00 more, DO IT!! Razz
