The 5200 isn't up to the speed with the GeForce3, as it was designed to be a replacement to the aging GeForce4 MX. The one benefit which comes to mind is its support for DirectX 9 features, and its compliancy. Plus, many GeForce3s didn't feature TwinView support.

Furthermore, a comparison:

GeForce3:

- DirectX 8.0 and OpenGL 1.2 compliant
- Pixel Shaders 1.1 and Vertex Shaders 1.1 support
- 4 rendering pipelines, each with 2 texturing units
- 6.4 GB/sec. bandwidth (Ti 200), 7.36 GB/sec. (original), 8.0 GB/sec. (Ti 500)

FX 5200:

- DirectX 9.0 and OpenGL 1.3 compliant
- Pixel Shaders 2.0 and Vertex Shaders 2.0 support
- 4 rendering pipelines, each with 1 texturing unit
- 6.4 GB/sec. (non-Ultra), 10.4 GB/sec. (Ultra version)

Any ATI card 9550 and up is better than the 5200 and any NVIDIA 5500 and up is better than the 5200.

The 5200 isnt that bad of a card though, as long as you dont do alot of gaming.

FX-5200 > 9200(se)

I have owned both in the same computer, the 5200 raped the 9200.

I forgot their benchmarks, because this computer was sold off.
