Yeah, the FX5200 isn't great for new games, but since its PCI, its okay.

I tried to find anything higher up than that but couldn't and found this:

http://www.amamax.com/amamax/gefx5712ddr1.html

Though strangly, even though it says its a FX5700...its built on the 5200, so can't be real... or is overclocked to be as good as the 5700...

Anyway, try this for size:

http://www.bfgtech.com/5200_256.html

Its a BFG (Great make which pre-overclocks video cards) and this is a BFG FX5200
