Nvidia isnt that good for HL2, and the 5700 is pretty bad anyway... get a ATI 9600 or better. rest is great

Gimpy is wrong. Dont listen to Gimpy.
Depends on which version of 5700 it is. 5700LE sucks. Regular FX 5700 is comparable to a Radeon 9600pro and a FX 5700 Ultra is comparable to a 9600XT.
As long as it is not a 5700LE it should run HL2 just fine.
HL2 is supposedly optomized for Radeon cards. That does not mean Nvidia cards wont run it . Doom3 was optimized for Nvidia cards but plenty of ATI owners ran it just fine.
