The 5600 is kinda old, and was made when Nvidia got pummeled by ATI, so look for say 5900, usually the non-Ultra's are as cheap as the 5600 and I'm sure their probably faster aswell

Not competitive with today's cards Im sure, but I get 290 average fps and it supports all the latest games.

I argue with people on internet message boards.
