Excerpt: In a way, my choice for this card was arbitrary. I was buying a new computer and had the choice of what to get. I certainly wasn't going to keep my old card - an MX440. Not a bad card in its own right, but still a budget one nonetheless. I was attracted by the FX5600 by its price - it was only £95 more, and it had 256mb of onboard RAM. There always seems to be big leap in price from around £100 to £250 - well out of my budget.
