Buying a 5700FX LE...
 
Any issues I should know about this thing before hand so I can be ready when I get it? Like driver issues, displays, anything really. Thanks guys.

OC the snot out of it. Seriously. I think 5700LE cores OC quite well... you might wanna look into getting a 5700NU bios for it... and hopefully you're not stuck with 400mhz ram.

Hey if you could give me a link to those bios or how to get it that'd be great dude. Cause I read on other parts of the board that OC this card is a deffinate must for some games to get a real advantage out of it.

you can oc it to about the same as the NU can... the highest i got mine was 365/750.. I then upgraded cards. If you want to spend a bit more, i reccomend the 5900XT. It's like the 6800GT of the XT series... Power for not much cash. not to mention good oc... 475/900

This is a little late but if you haven't already bought one you can get the one I got. It's the Gigabyte 5700LE Turbo Force Edition. It's already overclocked to 400/500 out of the box and will reach 5700nu speeds(425/550) easily. Got mine for 93.50 from Newegg.

It's a good value card. Can run all the latest games fine, but some will need a little tweaking. My friend owns a 5600XT which is a bit slower but was surprised to discover the card was running fine both HL2 and MOH:Pacific assault at 1024x768 with medium detail settings. This one is a little faster, if it's of the 128-Bit bus variety.

Actually, I did already buy it. I have Halo now and that game plays like butter. Its a great card... runs my CoD demos terriffic as well.
