Is a GeForce 5200 comparable to a radeon 9800, which is better?

the Radeon 9800 is a high end card, but the Geforce 5200 is a fair bit cheaper

i have the 5200 ULTRA version which ive seen for 50-100$ and it runs doom in 640x480 with about half the bells and whistles and no AA/AF... never tried it on farcry or most other FPS.... id say go ATI in this range DO NOT GO NVIDIA if under 200$... if you want to spend about 200-250 then go nvidia geforce 6600GT... if not go for any ATI cards from 9600-9800

The World is my trashcan and i intend to fill it...
