    Is this a good video card?

    For everyday use?

    For "gaming"?

    :confused:

    For everyday use: It is an excellent 2D card and runs fine with X

    For gaming: Don't. Upgrade to a nicer card, ala 9600/9700/9800. You'll be much more pleased.

    The 5200 is a great card for basic things, but it just can't really play the newest and greatest games at full speed/full settings

    That sounds about right. My brother has the card on his 3000+ PC and it runs any game just not at totally max settings. But decently...
