Re: What card to buy?
I have to disagree with you on this, ricercar. For that money, a 5700NU could be had, which actually does keep pace with a 4200 when OC'ed (no AA/AF), blows the 4200 away in AA/A, and has decent (for the FX series) dx9 performance... A 5600U could also be had, but methinks the inefficiencies of teh core offset the *capable of 850-900* higher ram speed...
EDIT: Oops! Wow, the 5600U has jumped in price on pricewatch to $128! Screw that!! However, 5700 sticks @ $110, and the VERY overclockable 5700LE can be had for a mere $79...
