FX5500 256mb or FX5700 128mb

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey-

I have a Dell Dimension 3000 with 3 PCI slots, no AGP/PCI-X Sad

I just upgraded my RAM to 1.12gb and I'm looking to get a top quality video card for one of my PCI slots. I know that there isn't much to work with out there so I need some peoples opinion on which of these 2 graphics cards are better:

1- Geforce FX5500 256MB 128-bit DDR
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143032

2- Geforce FX5700LE 128MB 64-bit DDR
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16814139166R

Newegg only carries the second one refurbished, but I can buy it off of Amazon new.

Any feedback would be great, If you know of a better card that uses PCI interface that would be great as well. Thank you!

i'd say go for the 5500, most games these days need higher megs

and if you want to play at 1024x768 with alright settings get the 256, or get the 5700 in 256 and that will be alot better

Would please fill out your profile and you can't go wrong with a BGF video card.
