Well a 5500 is not a too good card either. But definately lot better than the 5200. And it having 256mb memory is a very good thing. I have a fx5700 (256mb) and I have oc'd it. Can play any current game fine, only that in F.E.A.R I need to keep fsaa and dynamic lights off and some settings on medium, low or high, but most of them are on maximum.
