Well I know the 5700 works well. I was concerned because the blurb  
said it was a "PCX 5750 GPU", not an FX. nVidia's site seems to make  
a distinction between the FX 5700 and 5900 and the PCX 5950 and 5750,  
but it is not clear if they are speaking of the GPU chip itself or  
reference card designs.

The nVidia README also claims support only for the FX series, and I  
find no reference to "PCX".

So what you are saying is that the GPU is the same, only the  
interface is different, and that the ad's claim to it's being a "PCX"  
GPU is mis-leading ? This makes sense as why would they make a whole  
new GPU for a PCI-e interface? But you never know.

Jeesh I wish these vendors would get things straight :-)

But for $35 how wrong can one go ? :-)

Anyway, thanks for the info.
