    It can play GTA-SA but DOOM3 and Quake4 requires the best card with good FPS so i doubt it.

    I disagree on that I have the card for about 2 yrs and still its able to play the latest games albeit at low setting but it still gets the job done, my opinion is milk the cow till its dead and after that milk it a little more, so I have been overclocking it and its giving decent performance.

    Milk a cow till its dead , but don't buy a dead cow . Buying 5200 at this point will be foolish ,5200 is for 1800/- in my city (approx) , still buying it is similar to throwing your money in a trash bin. Its better to buy a 6200 agp for a bit more price. nothing less than 6200 AGP (Not a pci-e turbocrap)

    these are pci-e prices not AGP ones , AGP is bit costly.

    I believe plain 6200 is better than TC one, coz latter uses ur RAM( I mean system RAM ) to load graphical textures, Its like this 6200TC 256MB will hav only 128MB memory & it takes rest of the memory from main RAM itself. So better choose non TC one!!
