Go for a 5900, they use a much better GPU than the 5700 ones also the 5800's suck! (apparently)

nope. this is because the amount of video ram that games use is not enough to have need of 256MB. 128 is plenty. tests have shown that 2 cards exactly the same except that one have 256 and one has 128, the card with 256 will give you about 2fps more than thother one(maybe it's 0.2 i don't remember)
