    hi, spare my noobish questioin but i was wondering if a FX5200 would be a good upgrade from my PCI MX-440se 64mb ddr, my mx440 has 333mhz memory clock and 250mhz core clock....and its only a 64bit memory interface.....so if i upgrade to the fx5200 128mb 250/400 128 bit memory interface...will i get at least double the performance? i only have about $75 to spare on a gfx card, i woulda have definately went w/ the ti4200 if it was dx9 support.

    i've did the search on the forum on the fx5200....and it was mixed...some say it was bad while other says its fine...but i want to know if it will at least give me 2x the performance of my pci mx440

    Dude..you and I have the EXACT same card. Mines PCI also. I just ordered a 9500Pro (lucky me) because I am building a new system. The fact that the 5200 is AGP will help alot and it will be faster and yes would be an improvment. It is far away from being a VERY VERY good card though...

    i dont need a verry very good card...all i need is some thing that will play all the latest game at medium setting at 800x600 or above....im not such a hardcore gamer....i want to upgrade becuz i get 20fps average on halo at 640x480 at lowest setting

    lucky bastard....getting a 9500 pro are you planning on sofmodding it?

    oh btw, what should i expect to get (fps) in KOTOR or Halo at med setting at 800x600? jsut a rough estimate.

    my specs are

    amd 2200
    512mb pc2100 ram
    and runnign window xp

    I have the Radeon 9600 card running on an AMD 2600XP with 512Mb DDR2700. You will be delighted to know that I completed Halo playing at 1024x768 with the extras all turned on, and it ran like a dream. Go for the Radeon, I can personally vouch for it.

    yes but i mean the radeon 9600SE


    abu, how does your fx5200 handles games like halo and Kotor, like what setting can you play it on and at what resolution

    when i played halo, everything was on high. the max reso i went up to was 1024*x w/e #. i didn't try any harder. just a bit laggy at 1024, but everything else was fine. kotor ran perfectly on this card. at 1280x as well. hardly any lag at all. i like to play at 1024*745 or w/e the other # was. 1280 makes my head spin after a while, cuz all the textures are so detailed. i almost puked when i played max payne 2 at that resolution. it's a good card. for $45-50, that's a hard deal to pass by. think bout it
