Default Worth upgrading from a Geforce FX 5200 to a Radeon 9500pro?

the 9600 pro has replaced the 9500 pro correct? I just got an FX 5200 Ultra
and i'm wondering if a 9600 pro would be a better card...?

9500pro smokes the 5200, its more comparable to a 5600 ultra, even then I
would still say its better.

While my GeForce FX 5200 runs games at a playable framerate its not

really
that great usally around 20-40fps in games like Bloodrayne and Unreal

II.
I
cant really afford much more that a 9500pro. So would I see much

performance
boost? Another question is I have no Idea what my PSU is. Could anyone
guess? My system specs a Athlon XP 2600+ (333)
1024 DDR333 PC2700
160GB Seagate 7,200rpm HDD
DVD-RW Drive
DVD-ROM Drive


Thanx

Yup... but the 9600 Pro may or may not be as good as the 9500 Pro. It
has a higher core clock but less pipes.
