    Is it worth upgrading from a geforce 3 to a fx5200.
    can't find any reviews comparing the cards

    not really worth it :)

    you would be better off upgrading to a gf4 ti 4200 or something along those lines...

    the gf3 was a good card... performance will be a little behind that of the nv34... but you are unlikely to see a massive performance boost that you will actually notice

    after a little research, i found out that the 5200ultra has about the same muscle as a gf3 ti200. so a 5200 non-ultra would be a bit slower. and if you're talking about a normal gf3 or ti500, then you're definitely way better off with what you have.
