    Hmmmm what shall i buy????

    Hello, Hi and the rest. After much thought and and some more thought and then a lil bit more i am still unsure as to what mid-range graphics card to buy. By mid-range i mean whether is should by a 9600XT(ASUS) or a FX5700 (Gainward GoldenSample). Without overclocking which has the best performance and stability (stability in terms of which will i not need to update drivers for every 2 weeks!). I truly dont know which to buy as its like the whole of mankind is split on wheather to buy ATI or not!

    my system is pretty old at the moment, and the grpahics card will not be runnin to its full potential for a good few moths yet (mobo just bout manages AGP 4X) but once i have a lil bit extra ill be purchasin a new motherboard etc etc etc (king of Siam )

    I would say go for the 9600XT 128mb - you can get once from cpucity.co.uk for £114, and it outperforms the nvidia cards (from what i've seen)

    AGP 8x doesn't really make much difference

    I'd reccomend a GeForce FX 5900XT... they are only a few bob more than the 5700 Ultra, but it whips both that card and the 9600XT in games!
