Graphics Card Comparison: nVidia XFX Geforce FX 5700 LE vs ASUS A9550 GE

In summary, both the nVidia XFX Geforce FX 5700 LE 256 MB and ASUS A9550 GE 128 MB graphics cards are old and may not provide satisfactory performance for newer games like Half-Life 2 and Doom3. It would be better to invest in a newer card such as the GeForce6600GT or ATI 9800XT. It is also important to check the compatibility with your PC before making a decision. Additionally, it is recommended to avoid limited or "cut" editions of cards as they may have lower performance.

I am thinking of buying either nVidia XFX Geforce FX 5700 LE 256 MB or
ASUS A9550 GE 128 MB graphics card?

Which one is better for say a game like MS Flight Simulator '04 or say watching something live on the Internet?

I would suggest not to buy either of them. Look, they are both quite old graphic cards and if you want a good card for gaming, and I mean serious gaming including new games like Half-Life 2 and Doom3 , then you will propably not be satisfied. Actually after a few months you will propably start having some problems with new games. Of course they are quite cheap so it also depends on how much you want to spend. Anyway I would suggest GeForce6600GT if you want a really good and new card, or ATI 9800XT or even ATI 9600XT.
You could also check some internet reviews of these cards and find which one really suites you . One important notice: if your PC is really old then even if you buy the best card, it won't have really good performance. Check it out before you decide.

Something I forgot: I would avoid limited editions, and generally "cut" editions of cards if I were you. Sometimes, they have much lower performance than the uncut ones
