So... does anyone know off hand if this card is in fact a 128bit mem? Thanks in advance.
Just wondering why your getting him so alowend card, I figure he's not a gamer and if not a 5500 is not a real upgrade from a 5200, Just wasteing money, Save a little more money if need be and move up to a 6600 or 6800. And do a little research if money is tight and maybe get a Ati card, there are a lot of good cheap cards out there now.

Well good luck with whatever you decide!!!
