See my below post on 5900xt and doom3.

In dollars you can get the card for $185.00. Don't know how many pounds
that translates to.

Try to get the FX5900 the XT version is crippled eg 25fps vs 38fps with the
FX5900 @ 475/900 - thats 1024 * 768 HQ in Doom3 for example.

btw my FX5900 cost £ 120 ($211) ex VAT in January from www.dabs.com I think
however that they discontinued them or are still selling the remaining ones
at a high price at some places

the FX5900SE might be comparable however or is it just another FX5900XT with
a different name ?

That is too expensive I think the ASUS V9950GE is the FX5900 it has a 400
core and should have the 850 memory - you can often overclock them to ultra
speeds 450/850 (I actually run mine at 475/900).

ASUS also have a V9950SE and a V9950 but the V9950 says its a FX5900 Ultra -
and they have a V9950 Ultra which is also an FX5900 Ultra.

Bottom line here is as folows;

I've got a NVidia Geforce FX5200 128MB 8X and I can't play far cry without
the game having litle stops when having some action like shooting and stuff
( PC specs are: P IV 2.4Ghz 800Mhz FSB 512K cache and a 120GB HDD only have
3GBs free, maybe that's why the game plays a bit bad, and 512MB DDR400Mhz)
and the same doesn't happens in a Geforce4 Ti4200 128MB 8X (PC specs are: P
IV 2.5Ghz 400Mhz FSB 512K cache with a 40GB HDD with 70% free space and
1.0GB DDR266Mhz).

Now is it really worth it to upgrade my geforce FX5200 128MB 8X for one of
these;

Wouldn't like to say there's a Sparkle there for £ 94.95 which says in the
specs its an FX5900 but the item description says its a FX5900XT and it also
has a 400mhz core clock.

Just found this via google groups search http://tinyurl.com/62kgs its in
Italien

"Considerando che a freq standard la v9950 ha ram che viaggiano a 850 contro
i 700 della ge, che il dissipatore è molto più massiccio e che il bundle è
leggermente più ricco prendere la V9950 senza pensarci due voltre."

Translated roughly it means;

"Considering that to freq standard the v9950 it has ram that they travel to
850 against the 700 of GE, than the dissipator is the much most massive one
and that the bundle it is leggermente richer to take the V9950 without to
think two voltre to us."

Which would suggest the GE has 700mhz ram and is therefore an XT.

The XT ain't bad its just the FX5900 non ultra is significantly better and
there were a batch at dabs for around the same price in January thats when I
got mine - just lucky I guess. Seems to be a lot of misadvertising going on
eg XTs being described as FX5900 when in fact they have the 700mhz memory
instead of the 850 which is what your looking for ideally.

The MicroStar FX5900-VTD128 128 MB (DDR SDRAM) listed at this link
http://www.pricewatch.dealtime.co.uk/xPP-Graphics_Cards...
for £ 146 inc VAT at tekheads
http://www.tekheads.co.uk/s/product?product=602777&refe... looks
to be the real deal as they also list Microstars XT model at a lower price.

The MicroStar FX5900-VTD128 128 MB (DDR SDRAM) listed at this link
http://www.pricewatch.dealtime.co.uk/xPP-Graphics_Cards...
for £ 146 inc looks to be the real deal.

However when you click on the shops supplying them for that price
http://www.tekheads.co.uk/s/product?product=602777&refe... they're
actually selling the XT version for £ 146 inc.

FWIW my local PC World have knocked the LeadTek WinFast A350 FX5900XT
down to £99.99

Thats £30 less than all the main uk mail order sites (inc pcworld!) and
no P&P
Its also £90 less than PCWorld's regular bricks'n'mortar price :) 

They also had the LE version for £89.99 ( £100 off their shop price !?! )

Just to save you some time ...

It is the FX5900 non ultra 3D values are what your looking at 400/850 but
can usually be overclocked to around 475/900 for a few more fps. I just
looked on dabs and they only have the XT version listed now - how long ago
did you get your card ?
