I am still a nVIDIA supporter, BUT US$150 for one of those cards???? That is a F***ing rip off.

He might as well buy one from me, and save on the exchange rate.

Ummmmm..... if we are still talking US Dollars here, and that is an FX5200, i do find that a little pricy. I normally sell them at about AU$120.

These were performed on fairly old drivers; the performance may have slightly improved now since the release of the ForceWare drivers.

The FX 5200/5600 aren't necessarily bad cards (as the performance drop when bandwidth-eating features such as anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering are used, isn't as high as its predecessors), but there is just something better for the money (9600 / 9600 Pro / 9600 XT).

If I saw that price down here, I would be jumping of it.

I still feel that your freind can do better on the price.
