    congrats, you spent $50 to get a GPU, thats a little better than the one you prevoiusly had, and you could have bought a 6600 or something and really seen a graphics boost. Im not criticising you, because the 5200 you prevoiusly had most likely had 128 onboard. But I was going to get a 7300 up from my 5200, because the 7300 has 512 onboard and its under $100. But then I realised that its actually inferior to the 6800, because the 7300 has less pixel pipelines, and it has less graphics processing power.

    Yeah, even when I upgraded from an FX 5200 to a 6200, I'll be the first to admit it's only a little better. My reason for the upgrade was I made my 5200 pop by overcloking it too much. Stepping from a 5200 to a 5500 isn't really much.

    i found it at wal-mart
    they had the 70$ pci card (mine) and an 50$ apg card for my other pc

    No it was not, sorry...

    The 5500 is the 5200 with a higher clock, look...

    A meager 20MHz core OC is the single only difference between the cards. Could have overclocked your existing FX 5200 way past that with ease.
