I would say the ASUS card is better, they just make all round better cards, but its way more expensive and for the money I wiould go for the XFX card.

BTW, i dont think newegg sells to people on the land of OZ, if thats where you are from.

Pwn stands for nothing It's a shop which buys things off you for a while, and sells them if you can't afford them after an alotted period of time.

I can't imagine so - unless you plan using two monitors maybe it would make a difference but it may not be worth buying the equipment for the Dual Cards for just a 5200LE.

I dont belive u can use the 5200le with the 6600gt. If your thinking SLI. it must be 2 identical cards from the same manufacturer.

If you look up pwn, it means own but its used b/c originally it was a mistake, now its well-known. Google it, look up the histiry, its actually interesting...

Google means nothing to me

However, it isn't in the Dictionary.
