eh probably not, I could get an fx5200 cheap by the time hl2 comes out, perhaps $50 for one and compare the differences. Is it worth playing 800x600 to get dx9 features or 1280x960 instead on a ti4200? I doubt there will be much of a visual loss for now, itll be a while before dx9 becomes required anyway
You can TRY and get a 5200 working. And there will be a visual loss in case you dont think so...check out Maximum PC's article.
