cool, I just sold my 6800GT AGP eVGA to a friend last friday, he also upgraded from a 9600XT lol....he was testing it out, playing half life 2 and the age of empires 3 demo, and he couldn't even make complete sentence when he was talking to me because he was just blown away by the difference in graphics, but I also had showed him about rivatuner and got it clocked up to Ultra since it was running cooler in his machine than it was in mine, lucky bastard

On a side note, what an awesome wife knowing to get a present like that lol

Well if he was speachless by the change in performance between a 9600XT and a 6800GT then I'll have a heart attack when I see the difference between by fx5200 and the 6800GT. lol.

oh he could speak, just not make coherent sentences

WHen I went from a FX5700 to a 6600GT I was amazed, then from a 6600GT to a 6800GT I was even more amazed lol...so yeah going from a crap card like the 5200 you will definitely need to be wearing an extra pair of underwear
