Thread: Nvidia Fx5200 256mb

  1. #1
    I just bought this card : Nvidia geforce fx 5200 256mb

    and I wanted to know if it is worth what I paid for it. ($86)

    How close is this card to the geforce ti video cards and how big of a step is this from my gefroce mx 420 64mb?

    I wouldnt get that card. The clock speeds on it are low, although you have lots of memory you will hardly ever use that. i would get the ati radeon 9600 pro 128mb instead of the 5200, as it has faster clock speeds etc

    When you play a game like need for speed underground with both those cards (nvidia geforce fx5200 256mb - Ati Radeon 9600 pro 128mb) would you be able to tell any difference in quality or performance between those two cards while playing the game?

    I bought that exact card for just about the exact same price.

    I was up grading from a gefore 2 64mb that came with my computer.

    I was excepting a serious performance enhancment for gaming.

    I was barley able to notice anything.

    I returned the card and bought a

    FX 5600 for about 130.

    You say you bought it yet you don&#39;t have it?

    How is he supposed to know that?

    i dont have either, but i think the 9600 will be faster and maybe better quality (with whatever card you use always get the omega drivers, there alot better than the normal ones)

    As you can see everything on the fx 5200 is better except the RamDac: Ati 400mhz Gefroce 350mhz.


    So just the fact that the ati is 50mhz faster it makes it better than the fx5200?

    if you look closely, he said 9600 pro.... you show the specs for an SE.... radeons range from 3 models for each number usually.... for this card it would be, 9600 SE, 9600, and 9600 Pro.... those are ranging from worst to best, you posted the stats for the worst card, he suguested the best.
