Default FX5500 PCI, Gamer card?

Reason I ask is because I found a low profile version that fits great in a miniITX EPIA or P-M motherboard. I'm making a portable lan box and I want this to be my video card of choice. How well can it run games? Up to par with a Ti4200?

the FX5500 will not run new games at much more than lowest of resolutions and settings. usually that is. However, it is arguably the best PCI graphics card there is. arguably.

Take advice from someone who owns one, it runs all the games i have, the most grahically demanding one i have is BF2 on low setings pretty good around 25-30fps, but nothin special. but i dosent work on F.E.A.R. even on very low setting.

but i owuld go with the 6200 PCI

For the most part, even the FX 5600 (and occasionally the 5600 Ultra) is slower than the Ti 4200 in games, so I second the 6200 PCI motion.
