Default Re: Spore incompatible with FX5200?

I don't much expect a compatibility solution, I'm just wondering why the line is drawn at the 5700.
The 5200 the budget card, sporting 2 pipelines. The 5700 was the improved 5600, with 4 rendering pipelines. However, it's a more optimized design, so actual performance is way more than 2x over the 5200.
