I'm still using my FX5200. My Ti4200 should be coming in later this week/next week (UPS ground shipping, plus a paypal echeck.. ) Older drivers like the 44.03, 56.72, etc. are worse then these drivers (very few FPS difference), except with the flickering which is exactly the same (and in about the same frames, as far as i can tell)

So far i've benchmarked the FX5200 with Halo, Quake 3, Quake 2, CoD, Half-Life 2, UT2003, and 3dmark2001. I might consider getting some quick free hosting and put this Word file up as a HTML file. It could be interesting just to look at and compare...

EDIT: Set up a quick site with the FX5200's current benchmark result. http://thor.prohosting.com/mehbody7/benchmar1.htm
2nd EDIT: Note that all the benchmarks for the Ti4200 haven't been run yet, as I don't have the card in my hands right now.
