    9100. Easily.

    A very complete list of benchmarks.

    Get the 9100 since its not clockeddown as the FX5200 is (since its PCI). Its an excellent card, you wont regret buying it, and the price its not that scary either. Check this thread for you to get more ideas and Prexaspes link which is also very good.

    -=BEST=- PCI Graphics Card...???

    I HAVE DECIDED........ i decided the radeon 9100, because 9100-5200=3900... so the radeon 9100 is 3900 times better than the fx 5200 :P

    Thanks guys

    I hope your shopping savvy is better than your math skills.

    I can tell you .
    I bought a Asylum Geforce FX 5200 and it benched around 5800 points on 3d Mark 2001se.
    I returned that and bought an ATI...actually the Visiontek Extasy 9100 64mb AGP card. It posted 9020 on 3d mark 2001se.
    Later I read somewhere that it just an ATI 8500LE rebadged and enhanced. It does a damn good job.
    I haven't seen many lately and I have moved on to a GeForce4 Ti4600 cause I got a great deal on it;nonetheless, if you believe THIS,
    The Radeon 9100 will support pixel shader version 1.4, but the Ti4600 only supports shader version 1.3
    You can't run benchmarks like Shadermark or the upper end of Aquamark 3 with the 4600, but the Radeon 9100 will run them all.
    The Ti4600 can't run the ATI 8500 demos which was a REAL surprise.
    I had been using all the effects of the 9100, but once the 4600 was installed I realized it's quite limited.
    The 9100 really does have some advantages over the Ti xx series
