Default Radeon 7000 Performance

Hey guys,
I am upgrading my computer in a few days to the following,
AMD Athlon xp 2500+
Gigabyte 7s748 Motherboard
512mb/ddr pc3200 RAM
Geforce FX 5200 (maybe)
now if i was to put all the above stuff in my comp (except for the gfx card), would my Radeon 7000 perform better than it is at the moment because the comp speed is better or would it still perform the same???

Radeon 7000:
AGP x4, pci, 64mb


Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 *Cooled with Thermaltake Mini-Typhoon* || Intel Quad Core Q6600
Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3
2gb Kingston 667 DDR2 RAM || 4gb Kingston 667Mhz DDR2 RAM
Gigabyte 512mb 8800GTS (683/2150)
250gb Seagate HDD (ATA133) 7200rpm/16mb cache || 750gb SATA2 Seagate HDD
ASUS MW221U 22" Widescreen 2ms.
Logitech Z-5500D 5.1 Speakers
Creative X-fi Xtreme Gamer Fatal1ty edition

3DMark06 Score = 8524 (1280x1024)

No matter how fast the new system is, it'll always be bottlenecked by the Radeon 7000 graphics card. You probably won't notice a very significant increase in performance, due to the "weakness" of the card. For those games which are very HW T&L intensive, you probably will notice a slight speed boost, but the processor will be limited by the R7000's ability to only perform software T&L, and not only that, but the processor must also concentrate on other aspects of the game, such as collision detection and physics.

Scrap it in favor for a more powerful graphics card.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.
