Why a GeForce FX? After the whole 3DMark2005 thing, why are people still interested in a GeForce FX at all? nVIDIA obviously made a mistake with them and they're completely useless in terms of future proof.
5700LE and 5700 are slower than a TI4200, and the 5700U is only marginally faster than a TI4200, as in you won't end up playing games at higher settings and no real IQ improevement.
The only upgrade that actually provides more performance for that money is a used 9700pro/9800np/9800pro. r
256MB versions of cards like FX 5700 are slower than 128MB versions. Both cards that you listed are slower than your TI4200.
