Re: Hows the 5900 scores?
The 5900xt is a card for someone who likes to tinker... I get 6900+ in 3dmark03, 17700+ in 3dmark01. But that's overclocked like crazy, but super stable. Look at jimmors thread in the legacy forum.
That card runs everything fine, so long as you disable PS2.0 (Far Cry and Painkiller comes to mind) that means you'll get the same image quality as that ti4200 (which is fine), but with added AA and AF.
Don't spend too much for that card, mine's a year and a half old and I payed 180 US$ then... the price hasn't really dropped, and the 6600 (any) is a better buy.
And 1400 with a ti4200 is good.

Mild agnosticism —the view that the existence or nonexistence of God or gods is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say "I don't know, but maybe you do."
