In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6200 TurboCache are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce FX 5200.

The GeForce 6200 TurboCache was released over a year more recently than the GeForce FX 5200, and so the GeForce 6200 TurboCache is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce FX 5200.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The GeForce 6200 TurboCache and the GeForce FX 5200 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce FX 5200 has 0.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6200 TurboCache, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce FX 5200 is marginally better than the GeForce 6200 TurboCache.

The GeForce 6200 TurboCache has 7 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce FX 5200 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6200 TurboCache is 2 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce FX 5200 is 1. The GeForce 6200 TurboCache having 1 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce FX 5200 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.
