Gonna get a MSI GeForce FX 5600 soon . Got 2 choice . 128 MB and 256 MB . The 256 MB ver cost only U$ 10 more than the 128 MB version . Which one should I get ? Do I really need 256 MB card ? I'm looking forward to play DirectX 9 games like Doom3 and Half-Life 2 .
AMD Athlon XP 3200+ , 512 PC2700 DDRAM , ATI Radeon 9600 Pro , 160 GB 7200 rpm 8 mb cache HDD
If you want to play Half Life 2, dont get a FX 5600 !!!!!!
And if you still want a FX 5600 make sure you get the 128 version, the chipset is to slow to make use of the 128mb extra (256mb is used in very high res. with fsaa and af on, and the FX 5600 is to slow for that)
But better save then sorry, get a Radeon 9600 (pro) with 128mb !!
(check anand for hl2 benchies, the R9600 pro beats the FX 5900 Ultra in hl2)
