    Why not get a 9800 np or 9800pro..they cost around 200..the se versions aren't that good.. Also..any card can beat a 5200 hands down. And AGP SPEED DOES NOT MATTER....

    it might be best to wait for the new cards to become available and then get a 9800 pro cos the prices will fall. the 9800 SE is a pretty bad card, it only has half the pipelines of the 9800 so it runs much slower.

    SAPPHIRE RAD 9800PRO 128M DUAL (LITE) 314 $ :shock:

    seriously, the 9800SE is bad.
    wait for the prices to drop if you cant afford the full 9800 at the moment. the new cards should be available within the next month or so and the prices of the current cards will drop.

    thats what i just said.

    the 5200 you have at the moment will last you another couple of months easily. im still using an mx440 and i play games.

    Not only half the pipelines but the memory interface has been cut from 256-bit to 128-bit.
