Default EVGA FX5200 or BFG 6200?

i was wondering if the 6200 will make a huge difference than the 5200? because the 5200 is only $44 dollars, but the 6200 is $157 at best buy. im buying a video card so that i can run World of Warcraft smoothly, and im planning on purchasing 1GB of RAM also. my mobo has a PCI slot only.

the 6200 is a much much better card in fact it would be like putting a baby and a 4th grader in a coloring contest.

i don't think the 6200 is really that much better. yes it is better though. in any case i presume we are talking US dollars here? you are getting ripped blind if you pay that much for a 6200. i bought a 6200 just over a year ago and paid $80-$90 Australian.

thanks for the replys, i think im going for the 5200. $157 bucks is a lot for a PCI in my opinion, and especially buying it from best buy. nuken, those cards that you showed me, the X1300 and the 6200, those interfaces wont fit into mine. i have the other type of interface. just like the EVGA FX5200.

my interface:
___________ ___

X1300 and 6200 interface:
___ ___________ ___

id go with the 6200 because even though its most expensive u can barely get descent pci cards nowadays with everything being agp and that so is getting phased out to pci-e cards. i dont know how smoothly the 5200 will play WoW, my bfg 5600 could play it half descent.
