    well, the refurb 9500 i bought a new egg a couple months ago went kaboom and im in search of a new card. although the 9500 was nice, i dont think i need a card that good as i played cs and morrowind w/ it .

    i already looked at bigdawg guides......he grew up so fast.... , i remember the good ol' days where he didnt knwo that much.....anyways, that guide didnt really tell me a lot (no offense) , so :helpsmile: , the 5200 is really starting to look good right now....cheap, plays cs and morrowwind, and....uh....cheap.

    that sucks...what did u do to it? anyway, i guess the 5200 would be fine for you, or the 9200. make sure not to get the 256mb of those cards, and also dont get the 5200XT or the 9200SE, they are the crap versions of those cards...

    I would get the 9200 just cuz its an ATI lol. And with my guide its just to show which cards are better..if the 9200 is better then the 5200 for the same price, go with the 9200.

    i dunno, overheat i guess...i started seeing artifact and than a couple hours later....KABOOM (like when bomb blow up in cs)

    but the 9200 is not dx9....not that the 5200 can handle any dx9 features, at least it will have support for it so i can play on low setting lol

    well the 5200 does add a few features to games which u cant get with other non directx9 cards.

    for example, i tried out that 5200 on my computer on the weekend with nfsunderground and i was able to have headlights on the car etc.

    just little details get added with direct x 9. and the performance was around the same as my mx440.

    but not only direct x 9 u also get nvidias awsome drivers .i hate ati's drivers, nvidias look betetr and are easier to find stuff in and get used too.

    HEY&#33; The mx440 isnt that bad. It plays halo on full settings at 1024*768, at a very good frame rate...and i can play need for speed on it at 640*480 with highest settings i can get, or 1024*768 at medium settings, and both run at an average of 28fps which is pretty good.

    Although I doubt it will be able to get such good results with HL2 but ill try...
