    Well if it's a PC you're putting it in, you can't use a Mac edition graphics card, it needs to be a normal one. Other than that, you *should* be able to run the graphics card. No guarantees though.

    Woah, that's a bit of a downgrade, wasn't there an X800 there last time I looked?
    Both of them are terrible, but of the two the 9200 is much better than the FX5200.

    Well, a 9200 is certainly an upgrade from an MX400, it depends what you're going to use them for. They're both terrible for gaming, so if that's your aim I suggest you shop online for a better video card like a 7600GT. Be advised that you may need to replace your power supply if you get a powerful card though...
