Well I have a dilemma, my Radeon 9700 pro just gave up on me, put in a good 3 years, so who am I to complain. The original plan was to wait to get a new vid card till pic-e was a little more mainstream, well obviously that didn't' work. So now I need a new vid card, at a reasonable price, I was thinking the Nvidia 5700 series. I want it to be under 200$ but still able to run HL-2 as well as be better than a 9700 pro, which I think all 5700 are anyways be default. Theres so many manufacturers out there that make the 5700s I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or experience with them? Thanks in advance for the help, I do appreciate it.
