Very little to choose between them. I would go for the Asus, simply because I like Asus as a manufacturer and their products have never given me a moment's trouble.

but how much do you want for the old fx5200, if you wish to sell.

It's a lot better than my card.:-(

None taken.
seeing the price of those still on sale at various outlets I would probably give it away. I have seen them on sale, brand new, for less than £30.

to hijack your thread. As you can see I know little about AGP cards;-)

If you think you may want to sell it, would you contact me via the yellow envelope. I may be able to make a contribution towards your new card.:-)

I was being truthful. Am obviously using it at mo but if can get decent replacement then you can have it.

If I may change things slightly as I seem to show a preference to Nvidia cards. Would take recommendations for ATI card at around the same price if people believe I may get better card/performance. Not sure what the equivalent is opposite the GeForce 6600.

just found this one and was wondering how it compared to this one

This gives you a comparison click here remember that the one they tested was the 6600 128mb card not the 256mb one so it may be a bit better and look at the plain 6600 not the 6600GT as its a different faster card, from what I can see benchmarkwise they seem fairly similar. Though the 6600 is a newer card so will be more up to date with support for Direct X etc.

I have a similar spec to yours; Athlon XP 2100+ 512 mb ram, win XP, and I recently sought advice on what to upgrade to graphics wise. General opinion then was a vanilla 6600, as anything faster wpould then be bottlenecked by the processor.

Morgan have a particularly fine MSI card

Not sure what a 6600LE is, but LE usually denotes a card which is less able than the non LE equivalent.
