Depends how cheap but I would imagine there would be a significant performance increase as the mx range are crippled feature wise. The MX is DX7, the FX is dx9 AFAIK and can run PS2.0 enabled games.

EDIT : Found a benchmark with both cards, albeit the FX is the 5600 Ultra. Basically showing the the 5600ultra is a Geforce 4 ti4200 with DX9 capabilities, which would be a large upgrade to your current card.......if the 5600 you can get is an ultra that is :)
