Default Re: Was the FX series a failure?

I think I'll add yet another consideration about FX

I speak from experience when I say that when paired with a fast CPU the FX5200 isn't that horrible. My father has an Athlon64 3000, 1gig DDR400, and an FX5200Ultra. He uses it for business, but just for the hell of it I tried some UT2K3 on it and I was pleasantly surprised how smooth it ran. No less than 60fps at 1024x768. Not too shaby for a sub $100 video card
