Re: GeForceFX 5200 Ultra for $75? Good deal? Other recommendations?
Well, my father has an FX5200Ultra in his Athlon64 PC. He doesn't game, but just for the hell of it I tried UT2k4 in it and it worked very well. Of course I didn't test any AA/AF, but the raw speed seem fine and with high details too.
$75us is a good deal for that card, but I think you should check the refurbished section at Newegg.com first, and try to get a refurb FX5700 non-ultra, or maybe an FX5600Ultra (not much better than 5200U, but still better)
