i would stick with the FX5200 then. sorry i didn't realise you were talking about PCI. i don't think the 6200 is worth more than $100 over the 5200.

i dont know if it was the FX 5#### series but with the pixel shader v2 it wasnt truly v2 as found when i used obilivion it could of been just me 5600 but that was my experience. thing is that will only go up in price.

The 6200 is only $89 on Newegg-you may want to just get this. For the money I'd get either that or a 5200-both are pretty cheap on Newegg.

i think the X1300 is better in general than the 6200 though in a few games the 6200 outperforms slightly. i know the x1300 has a substantial lead in Source based games like HL2.
