    I have A fx5200 128 mb ddr ram. And don't get me wrong here it's a great card, it's just that i feel like getting a personal cinema card or an all in wonder, and also i need something with a dvi connector. (thinkin of getting another monitor). Just wonderin which one is a good buy. And at least as good or better for games than the one i have.

    Depends on your budget:

    If money is an issue then a Radeon 9600XT or Pro would be cool. There is an AIW version of this card.

    If you are loaded then go for a Radeon 9800XT all in wonder.

    Would a fx 5200 personal cinema be a good choice too? I'm pretty much goin to pick either that or the 9600 AIW. And just to make sure there is multi-display support on the 9600 right?

    I've heard that the FX5600 is a pile of crap.
