    im trying to keep my purchase under 100 dollars. should i get a geforce fx 5700LE or a radeon 9600. the 9600 has better stats, but nvidia is recommended for doom 3 which i am going to buy opening day. what should i get? or even a better question, i have a radeon 9000 pro. do i really need to upgrade bad;y? its got 64 mb ddr and i got 512 pc2700 ram and an athlon xp 2100.

    Uh ya, your videocard (the 9000) is lacking quite badly.

    Get the Radeon 9600.. nVidia may be "reccomnended" but it will be no better than an ATi.
