    Hey, this was my question, sort of. Look on Tom's Hardware site, it looked like for gaming the Ti4200 blows the doors off of the 5200 card, however it only supports DX8.1 if that means anything to ya. It looks like the FX5600 was the replacement for the Ti4200, so I think that means the 4200 it in between the 5200 and the 5600, confused, good, so am I.

    The 5600 is still slower than the Ti4200, the 5600Ultra is usually than the Ti4200, even the Ti4600.

    Upgrading? 5200 is not an upgrade with what you have. Upgrade when you want more performance.

    5700 Ultra
    ATI 9600Pro or XT
    5900
    ATI 9800

    GOSH! YES! go with an ATI card BABY! (for directX 9 support)

    he's my video card rule

    anything PRE-GeForceFX era, get an nVIDIA

    anything POST-GeForceFX era, get a ATI Radeon of equal stature

    Well over anything I'd recommment the ATI Radeon 9800 XT.

    For the question; the Ti 4200.

    The FX series are getting mega bad press and the pressure is on nVidia to bring out a new series. Stick with your 4200, remember as well that the PCI express Graphics cards will be launching mid next year - A time for getting cut price AGP cards or upgrading mobo and GFX card.

    Opps, nevermind - the GF2-mx200 is better than anything on the maket!!! ;)

    Enjoy... hope it works out for you - as both card types have their own "issues" ;)
