i have this card but it is a xfx 5700 and seems v good plays deusex 2 and painkiller with no problems both games released this year i paid £100 in april

I have a 5600 which I assume is similar, and it is quite good, but I think you would be better off spending about 100 quid or so, as it would buy you a card more able to cope with the very demanding games that are the norm these days. (HL2, Doom3, Halo2 eventually, stuff like that)

Heres the webpage click here its ok for the money but its not top of the line but its good value at £50

so what would u reccommend for £100 tht would handle the more demanding games? any links? thanks

in one of my pc's.It will play all the latest games including Far Cry,Doom 3,half Life 2 etc at a decent resolution so yes it will be fine.
Add to this the fact that this card was over £100 just 2 months ago then it's a bargain.Go for it,I can recommend it.

I would recommend my own card. It doesn't seem to have any problems with any of my newest games that I have chucked at it. While they are not the most demanding out there anymore, I think that with the current high performance, it would run alot of the newer games out now pretty well.

Its a Leadtek 128Mb FX5900 TDH XT. It was 7th in the PCA tables until the new cards all came out. I bought it for £180 in Febuary, but I think I saw it for around £100 online somewhere.

click here Dabs - £122 for an FX5900 XT card.

click here Dabs - £110 for an FX5900 card.

click here PCW Component Centre - £128 (inc VAT) for the exact card i have got.

click here PCW Component Centre - £143 (inc VAT) for 6600GT card.

Hope those give you some ideas. I am tempted by that 6600GT myself. lol. Got to start saving up.

If you want cards a bit cheaper than that, then have a look at the PCW Component Centre. There were loads of FX5700 (256Mb and 128Mb) for around £80.

If your'e not a hardcore gamer don't pay too much for a graphics card,you won't notice the difference,honestly.
The PCW card will be fine.
