Will I benefit from upgrading from G-Force Fx-5200 to Fx-5700?

I have a G-Force FX 5200, and I am thinking of upgrading to FX-5700 (G-Force). Will I gain anything? Or will it be a waste of money?

If so what are my options ( I want AGP versions and less than $ 100 ) both Nvidia and ATI are considered.

Please I want your advice.

    Here's the best deal in AGP video cards at the moment: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82... It will play any game out right now, including F.E.A.R., the game that makes most video cards cringe, at 1280x1024 resolution. It will play almost any other new game out at that resolution or higher, with the "eye candy" turned up pretty far. Eye candy meaning full-screen Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering (both of which make a considerable difference in how games look.

    I know, I bought one recently, and couldn't be happier.

    Here's the best deal I could find on a 6600GT, which isn't as fast as the X1600 Pro, if you're using AA and AF (the eye candy): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82...

    No, you won't really. That chipset is getting pretty old and wouldn't be a real upgrade. Do yourself a big favor and spend a few more bucks for a 6600 card like this:

    no, i tried that myself. it is still better to upgrade your processor than upgrading your graphics card.
