It all depends on which 5200 it comes with. If it's a 128 bit card clocked
at 275/500 (the fastest 5200 made) then it will be a tad faster than the
GF3. Other 128 bit cards will come in a little slower (but may have better
image quality). If it's a 64 bit card then there is no question. The GF3
will be twice as fast.

Depends, if the FX5200 is an Ultra..or a Non Ultra with 128bits memory
bus, then it will perform like a GF3 ti200

If though it's a FX5200 Non Ultra with 64-bits memory bus.... then...
then it will perform like a GF2 orso!

I wouldn't be in too much of a hurry to part with the GeForce 3 card
just yet. It may well outdo the FX5200 - and quite handsomely too.
Although the FX5200 is ok for someone moving up from maybe a GeForce
original or GeForce 2, I would say a GeForce 3 Ti200 might well make
it look silly... If you had a Ti500, I would say - definitely trash
the FX5200, so I am willing to bet that a Ti200 is only marginally
less in performance than the Ti500, whereas FX5200's have provided
only one thing amongst upgraders = Disappointment...!!!

Of course, not all FX5200's are created equally. There are bound to be
some which are better than others.. This also goes for GeForce 3 Ti200
cards too...
