Default ASUS GeforceFX 5200

Hey everyone, i know the fx 5200 isnt a very good fx card, but i upgraded from a 4x geforce4 mx 440 to a fx 5200 agp 8x, anyways i thought the fx 5200 would be better then the mx 440, but its crappier, i got close to 6000 marks on the mx 440, and on the fx close to 5000, wat the hell!?
the 44.03 drivers dont do crap, mgs2 has graphical issues and the mx 440 ran it smoother in 1024X768,
is there something wrong with my fx ? ive tried the 43.51 drivers and they got me in the 2000's in 3d mark so there crap, can a newer detonator fx driver unleash more power ??
im very upset and dissapointed that i sold my old mx 440 for this card!

Note: If possible, lets keep this an Nvidia discussion....... on the 5200 topic. Please no ATI stuff......

Probably you have gotten yourself a 5200 card with a 64 bit of memory. Goto www.evga.com and you'll see some comparison and actually they have an article that talk about the different configuration that a 5200 have.
Here's the link http://www.evga.com/articles/public.asp?AID=134

I've actually purchased mine from EVGA , when they have a promo for a FX5200 Ultra for $129. I am happy with it.

I've also tried the plain 5200 first and I was really disappointed. I returned the card and got the ULTRA version. Actually, the July issue of the PC GAMERS Magazine gave the ULTRA it a pretty nice number ,90%, for the review. I still have a GF4Ti 4200 128 meg and comparing the 2 cards, the Ti 4200 is still faster. Now From what I heard from the EVGA ref is - They said when the DX9.0 gmaes starts to come out... they you'll see the difference between a GF4 and a FX card. I have to wait and see for myself.
REAL PLAYABILITY" NOT BENCHMARKS " is really what COUNTS.

Next read better before you buy a new card.



It has been on numerous reviews that the 5200 series performance crap and even slower than the MX series. Trade your 5200 for a 5600 and you will be happy

I think you're the BAD CHOICE........ I can buy what ever card they have out there in the market.... But you are probably one of those who don't have to eat for months to buy a RIVA TNT2.
Who wants your type of opinion in this forum. Go suck on something...

The fact you you bought a card with performes less that a GF MX card alone says enough. I prefer no card than a 5200. Next if you have the budget to buy a better card for a few $ more, than do you make the stupid msitake to buy the 5200.

It is hard to acknowledge when someine has made a wrong purchase

The more you type, the more hilarous you become

Unfortunately my FX 5200 ULTRA is way faster than an MX card.

Be good

From anandtech:

[quote]When looking at the actual products themselves, you can make a couple of generalizations about their performance. For starters, the GeForce FX 5600 Ultra performs much like a GeForce4 Ti 4200 in situations where no anti-aliasing or anisotropic filtering is used. Enabling either or both of those features allow the 5600 Ultra to significantly outperform the GeForce4 Ti 4200, mostly thanks to the NV31's superior memory controller, compression and AA engines.

The GeForce FX 5200 Ultra performs slightly above the level of a GeForce4 MX 460 in situations where no AA or aniso is enabledbut once again, enabling those features causes the 5200 Ultra to perform more like a GeForce4 Ti 4200 than a GeForce4 MX. The reason behind this is obviously not because of any compression algorithms (as there is no color/Z compression in the NV34 GPU), but rather because of the AA and anisotropic filtering engines, as well as a vastly improved memory controller when compared to the GeForce4 MX (not to mention the higher clock speeds).

All 128MB Geforce FX 5200's use 128bit memory, however it's clock at 400MHz while the ultra has it's clock at 650MHz which is 4GB/sec extra bandwith over 400MHz.

Actually the 5900 FX Ultra is the card that I am looking into. I bought the 5200 ULTRA just to try it out myself out of curousity. But not bad for a level to mid entry card. The 5900 ULTRA seems to be promising. When that happens, I will be switching to a new MoBo and Ram 875 chipset and a PC3200. That will do it.
