    go for the fx5600. Dont be fooled by the 256 MB. The fx5200 doesnt even take advantage of it. And also the fx5200 is a old card. DX7 based I think. So if its those 2 then go for the fx5600. Also have a look at the Raedon 9600 standard. Its around 6k

    Hey rock!
    according to nvidia fx5200 falls in "mainsrtream" category
    whereas 5600/5700 etc fall under "performance" category..

    its like a diff between maruti 800 nd alto...both r small size segment cars...
    nd both will fulfill the task of taking u to destination...
    but alto will provide a lil more "performance" as compared to maruti 800

    if u wanna experience all the "bells nd whistles" or according to u "eye candy" stuff turned on then go for any card from their performance series..... :twisted:

    hey pal wats your budget?
    in general radeon cards r better for most of the games barrin a few new ones tweaked to run better on geforce.
    if your budget allows,go for radeon 9600/pro/xt.
    if u r particular about gettin geforce,consider 5600 or anything above it only.dont go for 5200.

    or go for 5700 ultra with 256MB...

    i'll try to get 5700ultra....otherwise second choice will be 9600XT
    though they both r almost on par in performance...so why spend
    more??

    9600PRO gives higher performance than 5700ultra in all the reviews i read
    except in those games designed to run better on geforce cards like doom3(but here also the margin is not so high)the qn is r u willin 2 shell out 5k for a 15% performance boost...

    the 5xxx series is now obsolete. Go for a card in the 6xxx series. Eg GeForce 6600 etc. If the shops don't have it yet, Go for the Fx5700 or the Fx5900 Xt. Between the two, I recomend the Fx5900XT.

    Or, You could go for the Ati x300 or x700 cards.
