I see they both have one attribute higher than the other.

Why is the 5700LE a better card?

The only place the 5700 really falls short is on the memory clock speed 550 mhz, to 400 mhz. But with as much vram as cards have these days, you really will not notice near as much the difference as you will with the gpu clock speeds. Get the 256mb version and it will be no contest.

And personally, I think ATI based cards are the way to go right now.

~$75.. Is that worth the upgrade? I'm not sure yet if it will happen. I'm waiting on another person.

Now I just have to find a potential buyer for my 4400

the fx series is a better card, it is dx9 compat and it also has the new engines that you need to run doom3 to look its best.

i understand that but it is not worth it you can buy a 5700 new for $85, and you will just have to upgrade that in a couple of months. so just spend the extra and get the better card. you could probably find one on ebay for pretty cheap, i would go with a 5900 LX ive had one for a year and not had anyproblems with it, i can play Doom3 no probs. and they are only 180 New.
