Hail, I'd like to know where I can find this information.

I don't know the difference between these 2 card models. They are both from
NVIDIA but I dunno wich one is the best.
I play games like Ultima Online, The Sims Online, Dungeon Siege, Diablo II,
Asheron's Call, Uru and such.

Here are the 2 models

GeForce FX 5700 Ultra
GeForce FX 5900

If someone could help me out, I'd appreciate.

Thx for your time

The FX5900 is best. See proof here: http://www.tomshardware.com/graphic/20031229/vga-charts-03.html

I just went through this as you are.
Here is a perfect link for you to do
an actual fact check on each card.

http://www.tomshardware.com/graphic/20031229/index.html

The 5700ultra uses DD2 memory
so I settled on it instead of a
stripped 5900 series. I looked
everywhere I shop on the web
and at the time I could not find
a 5800Ultra any way any where.
the 5800U has a 1gigahertz memory
clock. The 5700U has a 900 mhertz
bus. The 5900xt has a 700memorybus
on and on. So I settled for the 5700U
After you get above a certain
point, it gets silly. Most the
game s don't even make the
5700ultra or any other mid to
high end card breath hard or
heat up. I play alot of Battlefield
online and when others are screaming
Lag I can detect no lag of any kind,

I will wait till the end of next year
and get a 5950 for around $200.00
$I refuse to spend more than that
on a graphics card.
Good Luck
