    I recommend ATI,
    because ATI has been my choice for many years

    If I remember correctly, the Radeon 9550 is spec'd higher than the FX5200. The FX5 series and the Radeon 9 series are in the same generation too. The FX5200 is a low-end card and the Radeon 9550 is a mid-range card. I am 99.999% sure that the Radeon 9550 will blow the FX5200 away.

    I have the FX5200 in a very old system and it really sucks for everything. Unless you know how to overvolt/overclock it and put a bigger heatsink on it, there really is no reason to go with the 5200. Get the 9550.

    Welcome to Techspot!! :)

    Stay away from the Fx5200. It's a terrible card. All FX series cards are usually junk. Ati's Radeon 9000 series are way better.

    ive owned a 9550 for about 2 years now and its still running fine. I have 2 computers and one is for older games running with the 9550. It runs like champ and im not going to upgrade it any time soon.

    As everyone has said the FX5200 is absolute crap. Go with the ATI.

    I have the fx 5200 overclocked and it still sucks. I have to play halo at 640x480 and low quality to get 20-40 fps.

    This is a close battle. Both of these are budget cards with slow motion gaming in mind,

    Nope, not at all. The 9550 is better.

    But that's what you say to every card...
