for pci is the ati 9200 the best

I need a decent graphics card. I am pci with 5200 and I am looking at the 9200 ati. What do you guys think is there a better solution besides another MoBo?

If I understand you correctly you have the nVidia FX5200 PCI video card. The 5200 has one great feature, the fact that it is DX9 compliant. I haven't personally used the 9200, but it is a DX8 card. I doubt you will see any real framerate difference between the two, since your bottleneck is going to be the PCI bus. A new motherboard may be your best answer - you can get an nForce2 board (if you have an AMD processor) for about $60 at Newegg - about the same as a PCI video card. Then save a few bucks and get and AGP card. What are your system specs? I would be more than happy to help you figure out and upgrade path that makes sense, so would many here on AOA.
