What is the rest of your system like?
so your saying a 5600XT wont play UT2004 well my Nvidia GeForce FX5200 128MB can play UT2004 at all high settings @ 1024x768 and in most off all maps i get over 60FPS im sure a 5600XT can play UT2004 but i know my card struggles with Hitman contracts.. but the FX5200 can play half life 2 @ 800x600 with medium settings @ 30 or 40FPS or lower even though my pc spec is a Intel Celeron D Processor 2.53GHz with 768MB DDR Ram PC2700 and plays UT2K4 with no lag.. i wouldnt bother buying a new card if i were you... but if i were you i would uninstall the Drivers you got now and go with lower drivers as nitestick said earlier on... go to this http://www.filehippo.com/download_nvidia_forceware/
