Default Re: GeForceFX 5200 Ultra for $75? Good deal? Other recommendations?

eh? 30fps playable? Well yes I supose it is but that's assuming it stays at 30fps, especially in big fire fights while playing online. If I may make suggestion... on my FX5900XT I found the AF turned up and AA turned down yeilds faster frame rates while still giving a quality picture. AA seems to really eat at the NV3x's performance

And I'm still a little shocked you consider 30fps playable, I don't like my fps below 50. But whatever floats your boat, I hope you enjoy the FX5600 it's really not that bad a card. Performs on par with a GF3TI but with better AA/AF and DX9 support. My friend has one and he's pretty satisfied with it.
