    I was just wondering what card was better, the 5700 Ultra 128MB or the 5700 256MB? I've heard the DDR2 is kinda neat, but I'm really a nub when it comes to knowing the facts, so maybe one of you dudes and dudettes could break it down for me.

    Another 5700 question. Which manufacturer should I get it from. I'm trying to stay cheap and Chaintech looks like they are good for that, are they reliable? Or should I pay the extra $30 for a cool name like Asus?

    NO! 256MB sucks! If you're going to spend extra go with a 5900SE(around 185USD)

    I'm sick and tired of explaining why 256MB isn't always better than 128MB... It's nice to have that extra ram, but not when you pay for it with crappier quality ram and slower clocks... Just get a 128MB, no games require 256MB and they won't for quite a while.
