I finally saved up enough money to ditch the 5200. Picked up a BFG 5900 from Gameve.com for $220. Im wondering how it will run on my system. P4 2.53G w/533 FSB 768M of PC800 RAMBUS...what do you guys think? What kind of numbers should I be putting up with aquamark?

5900 Should atleast triple... if not more , 5200 sucks.....

Probably in mid to upper 30's (FPS). My 9500P gets mid 30's overclocked. 9800P and 5900U low 40's.

Yes that was a good upgrade,the FX5200 was one bad card if you want to play games at a decent speed.You should be able to play any game now with all the goodies on.

A 5900 should be a huge upgrade from a 5200 for sure. :):thumbsup:
