Question Geforce FX 5200

I'm thining about getting a new graphics card. today i saw a Geforce FX 5200 from MSI in a computer shop.. going for about £55

Is it worth it or should i wait until i start seeing the 5700?

Well, the Geforce FX 5200 is slower than a Geforce 4 Ti 4200 but the difference is that the Geforce FX 5200 does directx 9 but in a very uncompetetive way, slow, not worth it, and definitaly unplayable. If I were you I would wait for the Geforce FX 5700.

Yes, the GF3 Ti 200 is faster than a GF 4 MX440 because the MXs use directx 7 and the geforce 3 ti 200 uses directx 8. If you compare a directx 7 game using this two cards both will run them the same speed, if not the the gf 3 ti 200 will be faster and if you will play directx 8 games the gf 4 mx 440 will choke and the gf 3 ti 200 WINS

no way
the ti4200 will go into he rig drow sold to me.. the gf3 ti200 will then go into the family's rig and the gf4 mx440 will probaby be backup ;p those graphics cards come in handy

however i have a 64mb gf2 mx400 laying around somewhere, also a 64mb voodoo 5 5500, a 4mb pci S3 Virge.. the ram chips on it are huge.. i think they are 512k each, its up in a box somewhere.
