Default Geforce Fx 5600

how good would a Geforce Fx 5600 run on PCI interface, would it run as good as a AGP one? and would it even be worth buying this card in PCI.


My Lil bro wants something that supports DX9 but his PC dosen't have AGP slot.



Thx

I'm sure exactly whether it would hinder the performance, but it's better then most otehr PCI cards I've ever seen

Depends on how easily it would be to upgrade the mobo on the computer he has

If your just looking for quick cheap fix then I'd suggest you go with the Geforce FX
5200. The 5600 is still pretty pricy right now for a 64bit mem interface card and although the 5200 isn't the best card either it won't set you back very much in the long run and it supports dx9 as well.

well that was my first choice but i heard it runs very slow on dx9 games so it though the 5600 would be better
