Just finished the demo and I haven't had any problems while using the 5200 FX Ultra (128MB RAM)with respect to Deus Ex 2. The were consistamtly around (12-17 fps) with the resolution set to 1024x 800 and all effects on high. I didn't notice many jumps in performance, and the game was very playable. Once thing to note, though, is I have been unable to upgrade to the latest drivers. The newer drivers (4.53 >) cause a total system lockup. And as far as performance in comparison with other cards of the same price range, I don't have the knowledge to compare. I have a P4 2.26 GHz with 1GB RAM. So I am not sure how much that would affect my results.

I would go with another card...the fx5200 is not that great at all...I'd rather go with a ti4200 for $80 or a radeon 9600 pro for $150 at www.newegg.com

I agree with you but I live in Poland where chipest version of ti4200 cost $150 and radeon 9600 pro above $200:mad:
so i'll propadly have to buy 5200 crap for around $100
