I think the 5200 is better than the 7000 but they are both pretty poor but then you don't have much choice if you have to get a PCI card. Was trying to check on Toms hardware site to compare the 2 cards but it seems to be down at the moment.
One thing though. There have been a couple of people in the past few months that discovered their computer would not accept a PCI card. This I thought was very unusual as I'd never come across this before but I have to accept what they said. The last one had a Dell PC and couldn't get a card he had already bought to work and thought the card was faulty but when he tried it on another PC it worked fine. He emailed Dell and they told him the card would not work with a PCI card and he was stuck with the onboard graphics, don't know why but thats what he was told. So its worth an email to the manufacturer before purchase just in case.
I have got the GeForce FX5200 and am awaiting it arriving. My mobo does not take AGP or PCI-E cards. Budget constraints tied me to £30 and I think I have got a decent deal. Will let you know on performance when it arrives.
