I am planning to buy a temporary video card for my old computer because my old one went out. My question is there is a sale on two video cards at a local store in my area. My choices are NVIDIA FX 5200 with 256 MB DDR or the NVIDIA FX 5500 128 DDR. Both cards are just for temporary use so which one of these cards do you guys suggest I get.

FX5500 will obviously be faster.

Get the FX 5200 and OC it, theres only a 20 core clock difference between the 2 but the 5200 has 256MB so that'll be helpful.

heh the 256MB on the 5200 doesnt realy help that much at all, not fast enough to take advantage of it <br />
<br />
get whichever is cheaper, the 5200 overclocks alright from experience, dono much on the 5500
