Now were talking. I retract my earlier comments!

There is also a 5900FX Value that sells for a $100 less than an ULTRA, but I believe it has only 128 bit compared to the ULTRA that have 256 bit. That's not bad too...

I am hoping the value version will have some thing like 600MHz 256bit memory, still almost 20GB/sec bandwith and still pretty cheap

ahahah what a sucker, I was one too, I thought the fx5200 would be as fast as my ti200 but my mx440 was faster! what you should do is sell that fx5200 on ebay and buy a ti200

I had an fx5200 that ran real bad on my kt266a's... bios flashes, new xp installs, and different driver versions didn't help....

I sold it to a guy with an AMD 760 chipset mobo, and it wouldn't run 3d on his mobo at all... He tried it on a P4 and an nforce2 and it benched completely as it should have, and ran great... he's sending it back to me tho...

On my setup it benched poorly but ran ok... felt like a stock ti200 when it was oc'ed...

my fx5200 was slower than an mx440 in everything also would lock up in 3dmark 2003 and also she was locked so I could not overclock her. my ti200 was 50-75% faster and cost me less too

...why was my 128 mb gainward 5200 @ 280 stock for the memory then?

I still havent figured that out....

I tried a different bios (the dvi version's) and it froze right after 400... 320/~400 was my core/mem speeds... best I could do with a 1491mhz athlon on a kt266a: http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=6403842

And not all 128mb 5200's run a 128bit memory bus... I think mine had a 64...

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...l&pagenumber=1

rivatuner said 128bit, but I had 4 memory chips, not 8, and I could never get my fillrate higher than 330/800 or so...

???

...the gainward mystery: still unsolved...

Oh well, I'll have it again in a couple days... time to try some new tricks on it...

In the meantime: anyone else ever get a 5200 with 280 stock memory speed? And is that meaning 280 as in 140x2, or 560 as in 280x2? ... ehh ... dang Videey0 kardz...

my gawd!!!!!!! 5400 marks? I was getting 5800 marks on a stock mx440 at 270/400 which is clocked even lower than your FX also that card did not even run the nature test either! I had the fx5200 64 megs too and I could not believe how slow it was......5100 marks........it reminded me of my old geforce2mx in a way, even my ti200 was 50% faster, and double the speed in the nature test which we all know is video intensive! the 64 bit memory bus probably killed half the performance
