Dad is going to buy a new vid card (upgrading from MX-440SE - about time, thing doesn't have a fan, crap performance and lockups). Anyway, wanting to know the best nVidia card for his needs. He's a drafty by day, so he uses AutoCAD, and plays games sometimes at the weekend. Anyway, just wanting to know whether a god mid-range card like a 5600-based card will do the trick. Needs some opinions. Again, its only midrange, so 5900-based cards need not apply, or 5200-based cards (he does want some performance...). Oh, and do they work in Windows 98?
Thanks all.

A 5700 LE or 5600XT is probably enough if he isn't into real graphics intensive games. You can get a 5900XT for less then $200 and they overclock really well. A 5700 LE is probably good for him.
