Default Nvida Gforce Or Other

When i get my gaming computer i would like to know which graphic card is the best of these 3 for games!

ASUS NVIDIA GFORCEFX 5200 128MB VIDEO OUT
ATI RADEON 9000 128MB

And a little extra question is this Mother Board any good,

The Motherboard is fine . For games i would say the fx5200 but for a TINY TINY bit more you could get the fx5600 which is better then the 5200.Also you get Direct X9 Support on the fx cards better for new games.

Go for the "ASUS NVIDIA GFORCEFX 5200 128MB VIDEO OUT"
The motherboard looks good too.

Yeah - go for the 'ASUS NVIDIA GFORCEFX 5200 128MB VIDEO OUT'; its only a bit smaller than the one I have and i've seen it against better models that the ATi 9000 and it outstrips most that I've seen by far. The other nVidia one is a bit silly compared to the other two as it only has 64MB which would be a restraint on very new games.

The Sickness has a good point - the 5600 would be better and as far as I know it is not that much more expensive. A good jump to make although I don't know the difference in price would be to the 5200 256MB one which I have. I can truely say that the more RAM on there makes for a far superior loading time and graphics.

but it really depends on your budget and your personal preference as to which you buy!

Course Doom 3, although I know nothing about it, would play on FX5200 - that is a very good graphics card!
