In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon 9250 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce FX 5200.

The Radeon 9250 was released less than a year after the GeForce FX 5200, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

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 Radeon 9250 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 memory bandwidth of the Radeon 9250 and the GeForce FX 5200 are the same, which means the Radeon 9250 and the GeForce FX 5200 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the Radeon 9250 and the GeForce FX 5200 have 4 Shader Processing Units. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Radeon R200 is the second generation of Radeon graphics chips from ATI Technologies. The architecture features 3D acceleration based upon Microsoft Direct3D 8.0 and OpenGL 1.3, a major improvement in features and performance compared to the preceding Radeon R100 design. The GPU also includes 2D GUI acceleration, video acceleration, and multiple display outputs. 'R200' refers to the development codename of the initially released GPU of the generation. It is the basis for a variety of other succeeding products.The GeForce™ FX 5200 and GeForce PCX 5300 GPUs deliver best-in class performance and features at a great price. With a GeForce FX or PCX mainstream GPU inside your PC, you can experience cinematic-quality effects, studio-quality color, and the industry-leading performance and rock-solid driver stability you expect from NVIDIA. The only DirectX 9 compatible GPUs in their class, the GeForce FX 5200 and GeForce PCX 5300 models are engineered for compatibility with the latest gaming and multimedia software.
