Hi. I'm trying to determine a video card to buy for pretty cheap, and I've somewhat decided to go with a geforce fx 5600u rev. 2, But the problem for me is i dont know where to find one... I'm searching pricewatch.com and i see all these "gainward 5600 power packs ultra/760 or ultra/780" but they note at the bottom of the screen in small print "not actually based on the 5600ultra chipset". ???
What should i be looking for, in buying this "GfFX5600u rv 2", and where can i find it? Thx in advance.

Liberate your mind

On pricewatch, on the second page of the 5600U section, there is the Gainward GS 5600U@400/800. It is $229 though. It is probably best to wait a bit for prices to come down.

So if the RAMDAC is 400 then it's R.2 and if its 760 then its R1? Glad someone brought this up before i went and got the wrong card.
