Default Geforce n Radeon ...

Can anyone tell me which card is better ? Geforce FX5200 64MB or Geforce FX5200 128MB OR ATI Radeon 9700 Ultra ?

I find Halo laggy using Geforce FX5200 64MB .. ? so does the memory affect the lags ?

the Radeon 9700 has a better frame rate than the Gforce 5200 128mb and a much better than the 64mb but it might just be system ram. my Gforce 5200 128mb can run Halo decently. if you want more info last months PC Power play had a test between those 2 cards the radeon won in overall frame rate
