Anyone know how well these cards overclock?

...Hercules 9700 pro "red" OEM?

I just won one on ebay for $290 and wondering what to expect. I'm upgrading from an msi ge4 4400 so I should see a noticable improvement .

I've also heard the hercules cards are pretty good, I guess you'll find out... I'm running a gigabyte 9700 pro at 375/680ddr with everything stock. I would think with a little overclocking luck you'd be able to do the same.

The FX 5200 is basically nVidia's replacement for the Geforce 4 MX440 series, but with DX9 support. Targeted at the sub $100 market, not for enthusiasts/overclockers.

Before you do that I'd seriously look into the Radeon 9700 and 9800 pro series. If I'm not mistaken even the 9700pro out benchies the 5800, and they can be had for considerably less money. I've been an Nvidia man for along time, but finally broke down and picked up a 9700 pro.....it rocks!!!

Realy good review but it's kinda old. There should be newer reviews with the newer detonator drivers. You can google search for them.
