I can't seem to find a pci version of the 5700le... much less a 256 meg version. Any links?
The 5700le 128mb http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814139166 It's the one I have, I've had it since April and its still running good. I'll try to look for the 256mb version.

Edit\\\\ Couldn't find the 256mb version. But I'm sure there was such a card. It was by INNO3D (also costed around $50 more than the 128mb version).

Thanks for taking the time... one thing about that particular 5700 is it has 64 bit onboard mem... I found a 128 bit version right before you posted that. But it seems that the 5500 with 256 megs of onboard (128 bit) would out perform, the only difference is it's gpu is clocked about 60 mhz slower. If you do manage to find a 256 meg version of the 5700 I'd <3 you forever... but I doubt they exist (in pci form) Plus, 64 bit ram blows.

Sorry dude, but I think they stopped making the 5700le 256mb PCI cards. All I can find is the 5500 256mb PCI http://www.nextag.com/BFG-Technologi...RE-PRICES-html

256MB of ram will be a total waste since you will never even use half that. Just get a 128MB card that has a 128-bit bus and pixel shader 2.0 if you can find it.

Sir, with PCI cards 256 megs helps, and also with PCI cards, you'll use it. See AGP cards can share information with system memory (RAM) exchanging textures and such. PCI cards can not. Once there onboard memory is full, the lag comes in because they can't swap textures with RAM. So... you get more onboard mem for a PCI card so as to prevent it from filling up. Think of PCI as a one way street, while AGP is a two lane highway...


PCI-E is a whole other story... think of it as two sepperate high ways traveling in different directions...
