It's alright

If your not into gaming that much it would be a good cheap card to pick up.

The more memory doesnt always = better

The card I am ordering is a nvidia 6800 128MB card

The different maker is it has 12 pipelines, 256-bit memory, faster core and memory speeds and it can be overclocked and you can unlock the 4 locked pipelines if there is no artifacts to = 16 total pieplines

Also you got to look at the different things it supports. ATI is falling behind in my opinion to nvidia

make sure your cpu can handle it... i had a 1.0 athlon and i slaped a 9600xt athlon card on it and it SLLLOOOOWWWWED it down horribly... if the sytem can take it get a better card, the 9700 pros are rather cheap now and they are nice cards.

500 core speed? That doesnt sound right...

check out ati.com for the specs on your card

There are better cards out there for the same price as that 9550
