You could shop around online for a 9800 PRO and pick it up for about $200... that'll will give you a nice cushion to step up to harder core games. And when you need more, theres the softmod trick to step it up to a 9800xt.

Thanx for your help guys,tell me,is there much difference between a radeon 9800 & 9600 ? Would be worth buying a 9600 rather than a 9800 & save myself some valuable cash ?

Well thanx guys,you all said 9800 was the way for me to go ,so, today i invested in one & to my absolute glee i was not disapointed in the slightest.Put some tried & tested games in to compare with the old fx5200 & wow, what a difference.
Thanx for all your advice.i was a bit dubious at shelling out some serious cash for hardware that is required primarily for games but now i am totally chuffed to bits.

Thanx again guys,i left rep points for those that helped.
