    If you get the FX5200 Ultra, you might see an increase, but if you get the regular non-ultra version, I doubt it.

    The FX5200 is a POS imo, and not worth it's price by any means.

    Yes, it's being sold as an entry-level card (price-wise), but it can't even compete in that area.

    Instead, try to see if you can't get a GF4 ti4200, which is a much better card, and it will even be more future proof than the FX.

    Or you could look at some of ATI's offerings, which isn't too bad. The 9200 is a Radeon 8500 with a few minor modifications which would give around the same increase as the ti4200, but is more easily available.

    Under no circumstances by a FX5200 or anything in the Ge4MX range - because they are both basiclly rubbish.
    If you can get hold of a Ti4200 jump on it sharpish - that will give you a massive performance boost (for example it will actually let you play POP - your Ge2 wont). If a 4200 is not avaliable a 5600 128 should come fairly cheap - not a great card by any means but many times better than a Ge2MX. You need to look at spending about £130 before you get on to the acceptable mid-range - but a 5600 (ultra preferably) would suit fine.
