    I've pretty much decided on one of these cards:

    http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProdu...-145-078&depa=1

    or

    http://www.newegg.com/app/viewprodu...-145-076&DEPA=1

    Is the first worth the extra $15? I know neither are fantastic cards, but I'm on a budget.

    Also, are they generic as far as pc compatibility? What do I need to check for to see if they will work with my pc?

    If there's a better card in the same price range(<100), I'd like to know. I want to decide by tonight so I can place the order tonight and hopefully it will ship tomorrow. BTW, whatever card I decide on will be ordered through newegg.

    Edit-this card will be used for light gaming and regular pc use. Right now I'm playing cs:s and nfsu2 and my geforce 4 mx isn't cutting it anymore. :hs:

    yes, the 5700 is worth $15 over the 5500.
