    you want those two $60 card to " handle the real powerfull games out" those card are about as good as the redone mx440 8x 128mb.....but if its between those 2, i choose 5200 becuz of dx9 support and 5200 has faster core....or is it memory

    the Geforce FX5200 is slightly faster, and has DX9 features

    but neither of those cards will go anywhere fast

    you could get a fx5600 non ultra though...my friend has one and he play halo on 1024x768 w/ med-high setting and get over 60fps constantly....drop to 40 in intense firefight but preety good for a 100 dollars card

    I'm confused.

    Why would you want 60fps?
    Your eyes can't detect changes faster than about 12fps, although you need to go up to about 25fps so prevent strobing. Anything above that is wasted.

    I've just got a fx5200, it works fine at 1024x768 in PoP and CoD, with high settings. I get the feeling that people are far too worried about statistics and not enough about how the thing actually looks.

    I'm not going to bother doing any benchmark tests on it - who the heck cares what the numbers are - if it works ok with high settings then that's fine for me. If I have to drop some of the settings to medium, that's probably also fine, but so far I haven't needed to.

    25fps? anything below 30 is pretty choppy. if its getting 30fps on games like Cod then its not gonna last very long is it. ppl care about fps becuz they want to know how the card is gonna fare vs newer and more demandin games...i mean if its playable in cs and u get 30 something fps....how is that gonna do on a game like bf1942.

    i know above 60 is a waste, heck above 50 is but thats just for headroom....if u get in any intense firefight or go through some smoke, etc the fps is gonna drop so u want to have it somewher in the 55+ range in case it drop, its still playable

    Below 30fps is choppy?

    Perhaps you didn&#39;t understand my post: the human eye is incapable of detecting changes more than about 12 times per second.

    However, I also noticed that you reckon you are getting far better rates than the pro testers. When YOUR rate falls below 30fps, theirs would probably fall to about 10fps. If their rates are the correct ones it would indeed be getting choppy at that level.

    I didn&#39;t say I was getting 30fps in CoD, I said it was perfectly ok. I also said that since it is ok I&#39;m not going to bother looking at what rate it is, since it would be a pure waste of time.
