Though 5700 is as well recommended (last out come in FX series, means better than other FX's)

else if u can, get holf of ATi Radeon 9800PRO (128MB version), and best if u can have the original ATI built card.

oh i c so im guesing GPU clock speed has nothign ot do wiht it its all about the GPU , on another note i herd that ATI bullshiits on there cards and only makes them with 24 bit color although it says 32 and thats why it performs better

What i was trying to say is that I herd they lied about there 32bit seting really being 32 bt i herd it really 24 bit thats why there cards perform better most of the time than Nvidia

oit doesnt seems, as i have 4 PC's running at my home, 2 of which are on 32BIT, 1 on 24, and 1 on 16.

and there is difference of graphic quality.

those on 32 BIT are on ATi's. 24-BIT = Intel, 16-BIT = nVidia

there is graphic difference for sure. (checked by running DVD's)
