i finally figured out why i like my FX 5200u so much.
yes yes i know that the ATI cards beat it in the benchmarks but not all the time turn up the res and see what happens. i saw this in a few rewiews with the fx5900u and the radeon 9800 pro so i did a few tests to see if the 5200 had the same abbility @ 800x600x32 with stencil buff on i got a consistant 65 fps in directx @1280x960x32 with stencil buff on i got 55fps!! ten little fps to go from crappy to highest res the thing will support in FB not bad i think?
for me FPS is what im looking for a slight drop in picture quality or AA/AF abbility dosnt matter to me so if u like a slightly better picture go with the ATI.all FPS where recorded with fraps and with AA and AF off feed back from other FX users and the ATI guys would be appreciated (just dont start a war please)

I play with my Ti4800 and with 1024x768 in OpenGL with a comfortable 50-60 FPS, with full detail, but no FSAA/AA. This is for multiplayer, of course, since QMB is a *lot* faster.
(I use the "Island" map with destroyers for testing on a solid basis for all settings. Choosing the southern base, you'll see forests and fog-effects, details and sunglare - a solid basis for testing performance, IMHO)

With 1600x1200, same settings, I get an 25fps avg.

I tested the 9700pro just a few weeks ago and got a comfortable 40-50fps on 1600x1200 with full FSAA & AA!

Both tests run with AMD XP2000+ and 1Gig DDR 2100 on A7N8X. (WinXP)

I'll upgrade in a few weeks to an 9800pro, when the prices drop after XTs are released.
