FX5200 (non Ultra) vs. ATI 9200?
Used a Matrox G400 DH 32MB, great 2D
Then went to Voodoo 5, wanted OpenGL.
Tried 2 different ATI 9100 64 MBs, great cards, no driver problems.
Then tried Nvidia 5200 128MB, the 2D was as good as the ATIs,
but games sometimes would not work, IE 6 would crash.
All using Win98SE, changed to Win XP, still works great.
Went and got a Sapphire ATI 9100 128MB ($89), works great.
Even cheaper now, $70
ATI 8500, 8500LE and 9100 are the same chip
9000 is a slightly stripped down version of that chip.
9200 is an 9000 that supports AGP 8X.

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
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
Thank you for everyone's input,
