A Radeon 9600 Pro would be a damn sight better than an FX5200. And if you don't think a Radeon 9600 Pro will work then an FX5200 won't work either.

They're both AGP4X/8X

I was planning on getting a Radeon 9600 Pro but a friend said my comp would not bennefit from it. Also my mobo is almost 2 years old so i dont know if it will be compatible with it.

Urk. You'll probably need more RAM too. I wouldn't recommend anything less than an FX5600 Ultra/Radeon 9600 Pro.

It'll run it. I'm not saying it'll run it well though.
You'd need to post the rest of your specs to really be able to get a solid answer.
