Agreed! FX5900XT 128DDR is a much faster, much mroe powerful video card than the FX5700 256DDR.

Something to understand about 256DDR video cards is they are only useful for fast cards paired with fast CPU's at game resolutions of 1600x1280 with high detail textures. The FX5700 simply isn't powerful enough to really take advantage of 256DDR. The reason they sell it is really a marketing gimick. Sad, but true.
