I need a new graphics card. I've had a sucky GF2 MX-400 for the longest time, and I'm sick of it. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of spare cash, so I have to stay lower-end. Fortunately, I am relatively easy to please. :)

There are two cards on sale locally for the same price, a GeForce FX 5700 LE and a Radeon 9600 SE.

The Radeon has a faster GPU (325 MHz to the Nvidia card's 250 MHz), but the it's only got a 64-bit interface (the Nvidia card has a 128-bit interface).

Which should I get?

(BTW, Both cards come out at 400 MHz memory speed)

Between those two, you suck it up and get the 5700. The Radeon SE's 64-bit datapath is a killer.

Any SE edition is a no go.

SE = Sucky Edition

Get a 9600pro 256mb. runs for about $125 and still pwn :D Even a normal 9600pro would be good.
