Introduction

 

There is no denying that everyone wants to get their hands on one of the latest and high-powered graphics cards released from either nVidia or ATI. Unfortunately a lot of people cannot afford this luxury and for these people the release of these new high-end cards has brought with it a slight price drop in some of the older model of cards which we intend on focusing on here. Today we are looking at nVidia's GeForce FX 5900XT and 5700, both from very well respected video card manufacturers - Albatron and Prolink.

 

We will be looking at the cheaper 5700 Turbo card from Albatron with 128MB of memory onboard. Although instead simply just being a vanilla 5700, Albatron choose to beef up the product by overclocking over default with some additional cooling and giving it the label the Albatron 5700P Turbo.

 

On the other end, we have the latest Prolink PixelView 5900XT with 256MB of memory onboard which has quite a mean looking heatsink fan combination and an interesting temperature display device included.

 

We know that the 5700P Turbo from Albatron is going to be slower then the 5900XT in our tests but apart from these two cards we've included benchmarks from a number of other recent nVidia based cards from different market segments which should give you a good idea of what you want to purchase this year.

 

Let's have a look at what these graphics cards offer us and how they compare to a range of others.
