Re: FX 5700LE vs. FX 5700
I just looked at the VGA Charts IV from Tom's and it proves what I was saying all along. An FX5700 is no faster than a Ti4200. In fact, by buying a new FX5700, the highest settings playable in any modern game will be exactly the same as on a Ti4200, and in the case of a FX5700LE, they would be considerably lower.
Save your money, avoid the GeForce FX cards at all cost and get that 9800 Pro 256-bit if you can.
