Default Gigabyte/Leadtek FX5900XT

Any here own a Leadtek or Gigabyte FX5900XT?

Are they any good? , going to upgrade from a GeForce 3 Ti200 to one of those or maybe get a cheaper Leadtek 5700 (non-ultra) instead perhaps.

Haven't found any reviews on the net but looks like they're in stock.

Bit worried bout the Leadtek version as it looks like it doesn't have ram heat sinks on them, nice looking fan though.

thanks

I have a leadtek 5900XT. In 3DMark2003, with everything at default, the 5900XT is 400 points behind a 5900NU . Not too bad for a budget 5900XT card, but some of the 5900NUs are also around that price range.

If you can, try to search for a cheap 5900NUs, they're flying off the shelves like hot cakes.

In addition, the leadtek 5900XT takes up only the AGP slot, it's good for those who dun wanna waste the PCI next to it.
