Lets just say the FX series is very inefficient.
Very nice!

Stay away from the TC (TurboCache) cards if you can. They use your system memory, so they perform like intergrated graphics. But if youre on a budget, it will give you DX 9 support and still outperform the 5200.

I sed to have a Leadtek GeForce Ti4600 128MB but it died on my so I replaced it with an MSI FX5200 128MB. With the rig I had at the time I used to get about 1600pts in 3DMark03 with the Ti4600 and that ended up going down to 1200pts with the FX5200. However, the FX5200 let me run all of the game tests.

At the end of the day I didn't actually notice any real difference between the two when it came to actually playing games.

Try flashing the firmware up to the FX 5500... You'll get a little more power out of the card. When I did this I was able to overclock it a little more and it brought my benchmark scores up a little as well.

Lemme see, I have a hardware review here somewhere on that...

Here:

Pros: Economical price, ease of use, good DVD playback, actually has an RGB (blue) port.
Cons: It was whipped by a 4200Ti, has poor cooling, cannot be overclocked much further, and lack a DVI (white) port and a TV/out port


Having used many different video cards, I have a good grasp on performance and differences in different models. This particular GeForce model has all of the essentials for an economical price. The card has enough VRAM and core for all but the most demanding of games, such as DOOM 3. However, it gets whooped by an older card. The 5500 FX has only an standard RGB connection, and since it lacks a DVI port connections to some monitors is impossible. The card supports a decent refresh rate, but has trouble keeping that refresh rate with high resolution video. Its economicality comes at a price, however, as it doesn't have a decent heatsink on the GPU. In strenous testing, the card got hot enough to go into VPU recover mode, then the system shut down. The fan and heatsink don't do a good job of relieving the extra heat, so don't think you can overclock it any more than it already is. In comparison tests I compared a ASUS(nvidia geforce sector) 4200Ti with the 5500 FX oc'd. The 4200 has a much better heatsink, and easily cools the 250MHz processor. However, the 5500FX has the same processor overclocked to 270MHz, but somebody put a smaller heatsink on to save space. In terms of overclocking potentials, the 4200Ti outperformed and outcooled the 5500FX by a large margin. Results are below: ASUS 4200Ti: Has DVI: yes Has RGB: yes Has TV/out: yes Stock Core Clock: 250MHz Max Core Stable OC: 358-365MHz Max Core OC: 392-400MHz Stock Memory Clock: 370MHz Max Artifact-Free Memory OC: 605MHz (need heatsinks) Max Overclock: 1100MHz (3 seconds of run time before crash) BFG 5500FX oc'd: Has DVI: no Has RGB: yes Has TV/out: no Stock Core Clock: 290MHz Max Core Stable OC: 325MHz Max Core OC: 350MHz Stock Memory Clock: 400Mhz Max Artifact-Free Memory OC: 490MHz Max Memory OC: 800Mhz (card flops instantly) Conclusive Review: The 5500FX is not worth its economical price, as it is outperformed by a lesser chipset. The cooling seriously restricts overclocking, and it lack many amenities. In terms of the comparison tests, the 128MB 4200Ti is a much better buy.
The 5200 is has worse specs than the 5500.
