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

The GeForce 6200 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 GeForce 6200 has 128 MB more video memory than the GeForce FX 5200, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce 6200 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce 6200 has 5.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce FX 5200, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6200 is marginally better than the GeForce FX 5200.

Both the GeForce 6200 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.
