Default Geforce 5200

Is a XFX nVidia GeForce fx5200 128MB 8X AGP video card a good enough video card to run basic games. It's only about 70 bucks. Using this video card what is the best game you think i could play? Is there anything you suggest for under $150 that is better?

I had one and i was not happy with it.
For 3D games = acceptable but kind of choppy
For 2D games = good card.

My best advice would be: Don't buy something you aren't going to be happy with. Buy what you want in the first place, that way you're not disappointed later.

Although GF FX5200 is a low end AGP card, is till can support a lots of DX9 games such as far cry n etc. Just that have to make it low-end settings.
