Default FX5200 (non Ultra) vs. ATI 9200?

I posted yesterday asking for feedback about getting a FX5200 (non Ultra)
card, however, in the mean time I continued doing research and it seems like
quite a few people say that the ATI cards seem to have better image quality.
Is this true? I know the FX5200 is suppoed to have better image quality
than the Ti4200, but would an ATI card still be better? I have no problem
sacrificing speed for image quality.

My wife also asked me if we could get a card with Video Input. I know
there's the All-in-wonder cards by ATI, does something like this exist for
Nvidia cards?

So from the research I did, it comes down to either an FX5200 non Ultra vs
an ATI Radeon. The only thing I don't know yet is which Radeon. The
highest model number that I can afford is the 9200. Would that be my best
best or is one of the older cards maybe better (just checking, you never
know).

Thank you for everyone's input,
Harry

I'm waiting for my next paycheck, to prove this.

The 5200 smokes the 9200. It's not even close.

Have a look at the asus Video Suite Range. I just got me a FX5600 video
suite, runs like a dream and it has video in.

The ASUS 5200VS and 5600VS (VS = Video Suite) both have video in and out as
well as some decent editing software. Actually several of the 5200 and 5600
cards with 128Mb have VIVO (Video-In Video-Out) capabilities and most of the
5200's are well under $200 and the 5600's are lurking around the $180-$200
range. If you are looking for stability, both with hardware and software
the nVidia cards are just better.

I wouldn't say that...

Its a little faster... but I'm sure the 64bit version 5200 gets
stepped on by any ATI 9000~9200 class chip
