Default Readon 7500 or FX 5200

My friend has a choice between a Ati readon 7500 or a Geforce FX 5200. Now I am a ATI fan so I would tell him to take the 7500 even if its older :P The Fx 5200 has a DVI connection so he would have to get a VGA-DVI converter because his monitor doesn't support DVI. What do you guys think?

FX5200. I'm getting that too! I was going to get the 9250 SE, but the FX is better!

Ricer: from the latin word Ricarius meaning to suck at everything you attempt.

the 5200 also has shaders (even though they suck), the 7x00's don't.
