  1. help please! looking for new graphics card

    hey people. So im looking to get a new video card but I only have PCI. Ive been looking around and most people say the fx5700le or fx5600 cards are the best but I cant find a 128-bit 5700le and all the 5600s seem to be sold out.
    I was searching and i found these:

    256mb fx 5500 (didnt even know they made that)
    http://www.overstock.com/cgi-bin/d2.cgi?PAGE=PROFRAME&PROD_ID=1138554

    128mb 5x 5500
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002YY9RO/ref=nosim/103-1082056-8491831?n=172282

    can anyone tell me which is the better deal of these two or maybe reccomend some better cards?

    thanks for the help

    The 256mb version would be slightly better in games that require more than 128mb of video ram(like maybe doom 3, etc). It's almost double the price though.
    Here's the best pci card, but it's out of stock at the moment.

    thanks for the help. I didnt even know that they made the 6200 in pci. doesnt seem like any other site carries that card either so i guess ill just wait until they get it in stock or something
