Well, the Ati 9500 PRO (I assume you mean pro instead of non-pro considering the Pro costs like 20 bucks more and is significantly more powerful) defeats the 5200 FX ULTRA easily in all tests, and defeats the FX 5600 by a varying small-medium margin on all tests (or at the very least equals it). Considering the ATI Radeon 9500 PRO is around the same price as the 5600 FX Ultra, I would go for the ati card. Personally I have been dissapointed by the 5200 and 5600 FX cards.
