Is there a lot of difference between the various FX5600 cards?, I was going for a 'Creative labs 256 3D Blaster 5 FX5600',as I have read some good reviews for it,but is it worth another £20 or so on top of the other FX5600's that are available...and whats the main difference between them? :smokin:

They all share the same chipset, so it's really the heatsink and fan that you have to worry about.....

all i know is that there is a MASSIVE performance leap from 5600 to 5900, i'd save up for 5900 if you want real performance.

Or just go ATI, more bang for your buck....but that's another argument for another thread.....

In the nVidia world the current best-bang-for-the-buck is the 5900 Non Ultra at many major retailers for $200. This card easily overclocks to Ultra speeds.
