i would go with the geforce 5700 because i had the radeon 9200 and i hated the thing, plus the 5700 is much better than the 9200

The 9200 is horrible compared to the 5700LE. Definatly, definatly go with nVidia on this one.

Both are bad, but I guess if it HAD to be one of them then I would go with the 5700LE, but really I think you should just get the 9600XT, or maybe even the Pro.

What the heck are you talking about? Him getting a 5700 wouldn't bottleneck anything.

Exactly what I was thinking. I dunno maybe you just don't understand what a bottleneck really is, which is fine, cuz that statement really doesn't make sense.
