ATI x700 versus integrated ATI Radeon 3200

My old computer just died and I have picked up a new one. The old computer had a 128 ATI RADEON X700 (not a Pro) installed. The new computer has an integrated 256 MB ATI RADEON 3200 on board. I salvaged the X700 from my old computer. Is there any benefit to installing it in the new one, or is the performance of the integrated 3200 going to be better than the X700?

I did try to search before posting, and I found the comparison chart, but I didn't see the X700 or the integrated 3200 on it. Likely, I missed it and just don't know where to look. Please be gentle with me. Any response would be greatly appreciated.

  1. I haven't given up on finding the answer to my question, so I decided to try to compare the "Windows Experience Index" for the two options. Unless I'm missing something, the two seem pretty comparable.

    Neither card may be that great, but I'm not intending to use my computer as a gaming computer or for anything too graphics-intensive so I'm not worried that I'm not scoring higher. I just didn't want the X700 to go to waste. Since I have it as a spare, I'm just curious as to whether I should go to the trouble of installing it.
  2. What im showing you here are notebook GPU,s but the bit about the chipset and crossfireX may be of interest and i would have thought (guessed) that the performance differance would translate to standard cards.
