Anyone discovered Vmods for FX 5200 yet?

I was just wondering if somebody already discovered or is discovering how to Vmod a FX 5200 non-ultra, any hints would be great...

While we're on the subject of GF FX 5200's, I have a question, please. Compared to the other GF FX Vidcards, the GF FX 5200's are quite inexpensive.

Does this mean that you'd be better off with an old GF 4 Ti4200 or even a GF3 Ti200?? I ask mainly because the bottom end GF 4 was really a GF 3 MX 400/200, in the main.

The Ti4200 is a better bet on the whole than the FX 5200 its a bit of a dog apparently

I picked up one of these for that Dual PIII system that I build. I got it for around $100. Didn't seem that bad. It has dual monitor out and S video out. I'll probably bench it this weekend. And let ya know how it did.

Honestly I thought it was a decent little card. I hope I wasn't wrong.

I think the cheap 5200's are good cards for the money.

Ive seen the 64mb ones for under £50, makes me laugh when people compare them too a 9200 or 9500 that costs more than double that :P
