Default Comparing GPUs

So this is what I am currently using
NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 - PNY VCGFX522PPB GeForce FX5200 256MB 128-bit DDR PCI Video Card - Retail

Is a onboard NVIDIA GeForce 6100 better?

And don't just say get a new GPU, I don't have the money right now
but I really want to.

I'm not sure but I think the FX5200, is still slightly better, because the onboard 6100 has 2 pixel pipelines, compared to the 5200's 4 pixel pipelines, and the more pipes, the better the performance. The 6100 is slightly faster, and supports newer technologies, such as shader model 3.0...

I still think that x5200 is scrap!, from personal expierience. I'm currently using Ati GeCube Radeon X1600 512mb DDR2 AVIVO.

I originally thought the FX-5200 had 2 pipelines. So that's why it performs better than the 9200, despite ATI having superior GPU architecture in the 9000 series compared to Nvidia's FX series.
