Default Re: 5700 or 9100

I was stuck on a 1.4GHZ system a few years back with only pci slots. I feel your pain. I was playing UT2K3 when it had first come out on a 1600+ AMD and a G2MX200 64MB PCI. I ended up getting the 9100, it was alittle faster, luckily I bought a new 2.66GHZ system with an agp slot in 2003......i've been in your shoes, best thing to do is buy a new mobo with an agp slot. None, and I mean NONE of these pci cards can compare to the stuff on agp. I mean, were moving forward toward pci-e right now, agp is already dating, so sticking it out with a pci slot is rough if you're even a moderate gamer. Get a new mobo and pick up a 9600/9800 Pro.
