I need some opinions

I am somewhere near ready to buy a new graphics card, and I found one that might be a bargain. I would like someone to comment on this graphics card that I am about to get soon. Is it reliable, does it display very good graphics and does it improve the fps in FS?

What graphics card are you buying?

lol thought I was missing something there 😂

It looks good for that price 🙂

I'm no expert but that looks like a nice card, though some of the reviews say it isn't much of an upgrade but depends on how much you want to spend 😉

Sorry lol, how could I forget? Here: http://www.planetmicro.co.uk/product_info.asp?stockcode=M005135

I'd have to say I'd prefer the Radeon 9800PRO 128MB 256-bit DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814131247

Or if you want the 256MB then the SAPPHIRE 100557-RD Radeon 9800PRO 256MB DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102515

I got the Radeon 9800PRO the other day and I have to say that it has made a big difference. In other words a good graphics card is well worth the bucks.

Save your money as,the "fx5200"and the "9250"are both buget cards,and you may not see any difference at all 😳

I dug this old post out about the fx5200 the other day and it may help untill you get a new card ➡

You could also try the Omega drivers ➡

Thanks for the information. What I really want is more detailed graphics and a much better fps rate. I would love it if I could get those 😀

If you want a better fps rate i'd recommend getting some more ram if you can.
