I have to choose between a Radeon 9600 Pro with 128MB, and a GeForce FX
5700LE with 256MB. Which one is better?.
I live in Argentina, and apparently, they are the only ones in the
market...
Do the 256MB really make the 5700LE better than the 9600 Pro with
128MB, as some people have told me here?. Both of them cost the same,
so that's not a problem.
I currently have a GeForce FX 5200 with 128MB, and I want to get a
better card. I've seen in http://users.rcn.com/chare/video.htm that the
core and memory speed, and the BW are the same in the 5200 and the
5700LE, but i've been told that the additional 128MB of the 5700LE,
duplicate the memory speed, and bw. Is that true?
Thanks in advance...

The extra memory won't help the 5700le at all. It's more marketing than
performance. The 9600 Pro is a faster card.
