Default Re: XFX GeForceFX 5700 Ultra OR Sapphire Radeon 9600XT???

I would concur with Trashcan,

Both cards would do fine. I owned a 5700u and only sold it to make way for the NV40. It did fine in the Far Cry demo with the 'water fix' and everything on very high.

Personally, I would advise waiting and seeing what the next generation brings. Even the mid range should be very solid cards.

looking at his sig, hes got an xp1600 pally at 1.4GHz so hes cpu limited. $310 is way too much, you can grab a 9800 pro off newegg for $210 and upgrade that cpu of yours

if you don't want to wait and step up to a new gen card, i'd still skip both and get a 5900xt while you still can....
