Re: FX-5500 vs. 6200
I would definately go for the 6200. The FX series is getting old (lol, it's been out for what...3 years?) My room mate has a 6200 AGP and it runs everything fine. Not at highest setting mind you but it can play it. And his actually is passively cooled (no fan, just a heatsink); makes it nice and quite.
