The 5200 can run all the newest games but it does it poorly. It'* another budget card i hate to say it.

I have a 9600XT and it'll play all new games at a very playable speed at good image quality. I paid $100 @ best buy on turkey day sales. Much better then the normally priced $150 cards.

9700 Pro'* still go for a decent amount these days and they're 2 years old. They're still better then Cards with an MSRP under $150.

the fx5200 sucked straight up... some older cards with less memory out perform it.
the only advantage it has on the older cards is that it supports a newer direct x generation

All of the 5000 series cards sucked! This new one should be ok but as far as running the newest games, sure, but with all the settings at low.

Exactly my point, they said the same things when they were coming out.
