As things stand, and as I read them, a 5200 is good, as is a 6200.
Anything beyond those two offers diminishing return on investment.

However, when mythtv-vid is unleashed, all that looks like changing.
Then the 6200 will perhaps be an optimistic minimum, with more and
perhaps serious graphics grunt becoming highly desirable.

But the answer to your question really depends on what you expect to
get for the departing Radeon.
