In the sub $60 area I stick with GF4ti or GF3... they're still worth the money...
I agree. The performance of the 5600 sucked, but in the right price range it would be a better value. At the time I had mine the card was worth about $160 retail (mostly because of the 256Mb memory)... which is totaly obsurd considering the 9600 pro was only $145 (actually mine was $138+shipping).
ill go see how much 5600s are now... if they are a penny over $60 im gonna kick some ass
