Default question

Is the GeForce Fx 5500 OC a good card that will run well?

Personally I'd go with a Radeon 9800 Pro/XT or, depending on your system, a Geforce 6600 GT.

AMD X2 4400+ Toledo 1MB/Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe/2GB Kingston HyperX/SLI Gigabyte 7800 GTX 256MB/Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS Plat w/ Creative Inspire 6.1 speakers /180GB Hitachi PATA/19\" AG Neovo F-419 LCD/OCZ PowerStream 600W PSU/WinXP Home SP2
