Default gf2 / fx5200 performance? the same??

So, I've had a geforce2ti 64 for a while, and found a great deal on an fx5200 128, so I got it. And after trying a number of different drivers, I still havent gotten the card to perform as well as the gf2.

gf2 - 1400fps
fx5200 - 800fps

quake demo4:
gf2 - 67fps
fx5200 67fps

so, it 'is' hardware rendering, but not nearly as fast as it should, I have tried using SBA and fast write, but no signifigant change, and I tested with the last 3 driver releases, starting with 4496. And it is using 4x agp. I also tried switching from nvagp to agpart, with NvAGP "2". No difference. Any suggestions to get the right performance out of it? I know its not 'the best' card, but it should at least beat my geforce2. thanks a bunch

"great deal" 5200's are usually the 64 bit memory equipped, which = 128bit sdram... GF2ti's are straight 128bit DDR, and they stomp value 5200's in single texturing...

128bit ddr 5200's are on par in perf to GF3...
