I have the FX5200 In this machine AMD Athlon 2400 and it seems to cope with Flight simulator 2004 quite happily. Which is very graphics intensive
Can't comment on the shoot em up games though as I dont run them.

The 5200FX is around the same or even worse than a mx440, so I would avoid them if you can.

I am not to sure about the FX5600 as I havent had one before, but if you can get a ultra version.

As for comparing the FX5600 and 9600pro I couldnt say. Try looking at some hardware sites to see if they have any benchmarks or comparisons for you too look at.

simple answer is no nvidia XT = the SE version of the ati ie crippled, so its true equal is an ati 9600se and not the pro

With your budget you are limited to the ati R9600SE cards. You won't get a standard 9600 or 9600 pro version for that price.

Similarly your only option with Nvidia is the FX5200. You may just get a 5200U (Ultra) but this may be outside your budget.

The FX5200 & R9600SE are closely matched as seen in the benchmark link above, but it does depend on the game being played as to which performs better.

Having a budget around £100 can make a very big difference so I would recommend you save a bit longer and get a much better card like the Ati 9800 which will last longer as your current budget gets you cards near the very bottom of the league now.

See the benchmarks link I gave earlier to comare different models and you will find the answer to your questions. The Nvidia Ultra cards tend to be the top model for the version and come at a premium price.

johndc's answer was to your prerious question asking what card his mate has, he is not saying what card you have, he is saying what card his mate has.

For benchmarks, I repeat... see the benchmark link I gave earlier which compares all the current cards together.
