So then, the 9600 Pro is better than the 5700Le?

You didn't really tell me very well :p...

$120USD = 50

so around 30-40.

As i posted before I would go for NVidia not for experience, but more for what I've heard about ATI (driver problems... and stuff) and i like more the logo and name of Nvidia (:$) anything else than this i don't have anything agains ATI, but the NVidia card I've seen and tested have been pretty nice.

But technically... talking about performance I don't really know :'(. Rightnow I'm saving money for a new mobo with PCIe and waiting also for the prices of the GF7 to drop, it's the card of my dreams(Y)

Yes the 9600 Pro is a better card than the 5700LE.

To be fair to ATI i'm running my old Radeon 9600 256MB now and it will happily run the following at 1024x768 Medium Quality with no AA/AF (Anti-Aliasing / Anisotropic Filtering) Half Life 2, Doom3, Battlefield 2, WoW, Lineage 2, Unreal 2 & Everquest 2.

I use 5.6 Drivers as they perform best on a 9600.  Expect new cards from nVidia & ATI to be around in Q1 of 2006 (hopefully).

Hmm.. fourty pounds, that about how come USD?

And to point out, I mostly play Counter-Strike: Source, at DirectX level 9, everything on full, and 2X AA/4X AF // 1024X728 and it runs perfectly, with a 1.8A P4 OC'd to 2.52, awesome card.

selling it for the cause of me wants to buy new computer, and I would need some money, plus I won't be buying a PCI-E mobo. thats about it, talk on msn fo' more. =P

Well, I can buy the graphics card for 50 over here, so it would be around 35 tbh...

Is that okay? It's all I have atm... :banana:... >.<

($64USD btw.)

You need critics. Take a look at all the free ringtone sites. A critic would tell you that they charge you $10 per week for a subscription service after that.[/slightly off topic]
