    I don't really have a technical problem with my computer, just a simple question that for some reason no other website I've been to can answer. My family just got a new computer only I wasn't there to witness it and better understand everything there is to know about it. During the life of our old computer I bought a new video card ( a Geforce FX 5200) to enhance my gaming experience. The new computer has a Radeon Xpress 200 and I'm wondering if the Geforce is a better video card and if I should replace the Radeon. The only problem is, and I'm going to display my ignorance here, every time I look for some kind of comparison between the two the Radeon does not show up because it's called a chipset or something like that. I'm wondering if the Geforce is worth putting into the new computer or if it's even possible, Thanks!!

    Coming from a previous owner of an onboard X200, keep it. I had no problems playing games like Battlefield 2 and RCT3.

    The 5200 is an OLD card, i would suggest something in the 6000's series if your tight on money and dont care for much gaming, but depending on whats on your motherboard, you could upgrade to a newer mainstream card - Like the ATI Radeon X1k series - (I'm running a Sapphire Radeon X1600 Pro on a PCI-E port - playing games in high and Ultra high modes, yet the card cost me $80)

    For now, go with the X200, its a great chipset and you shouldnt have a problem for now.
