I want an FX card because of improved pixel shader and vertex shader support. I even expect support for glSlang (in hardware) when it will be available. Since all GeForce 4 and below are DirectX 8.1 cards or below I will lack the functionality I need. I am a developer. I do not want extreme performance. I just want to see how things work. My 5200 card supports fully opengl 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, (and another 100 extensions) which can not be said for GeForce 4TI or below.
I am happy with all the features my card has, I just have a problem with being lied by Asus and my seller. They have advertised some memory clock frequencyes and they have sold me a card with different frequencyes. That means that I was robbed, in a way.
This is why tommorow I will try to return my card. Stay tuned for the result.
