personally speaking... no... I dun like the 5200 series personally...

specially not for the supposed dx9 features...

also agp 4x - 8x == 0 difference in actual performance...

for the price it is a good card... for a little more money you can get the gf4 ti 4200... a better all around performer...

also... the 256mb makes no difference to this cards performance per se... you may be better off buying the 128mb 5200ultra instead...

oh that reminds me :)

don't buy the 5200 non-ultra if you can help it... the ultra is a FAR better card...

8500 > 9000 ... :)
