Chaintech FX5600 Ultra A-FX71
Chaintech has been building a reputation of quality built products, and as of late, have been adding a 'sex appeal' to their line. The Apogee FX 5600 Ultra follows that path with eye pleasing gold heatsinks (yes, multiple), albeit a monster when pieced together, it is quite sexy, especially with the clear plastic casing around the entire card. They even used gold on the case connector.

CATALYST 3.9 Driver Report
Since CATALYST 3.9 is essentially based on a derivative of CATALYST 3.8, there's nothing new in these drivers for you. The interface and menus remain the same, and so does the performance. Therefore, there really isn't a compelling reason to upgrade. CATALYST 3.9 is merely more of the same (including many of the same problems), only with a new name.

Guru 3D have updated their download page with Detonator 52.70 for Windows 2000/XP from MSI. "This set originated from MSI who has them on-line in their Live Update program. We've checked this archive out and despite some small MSI (one logo in the installer) related information this is a 100% NVIDIA reference set. It'll work on any NVIDIA graphics card, we installed them on a reference GeForce FX 5900 Ultra. The archive has been virus/trojan checked and is safe. Files within the archive are dated 24-Oct-2003 making this the absolute newest set available."
