5200 or 9200SE?

Got 50$ to spend on either of these wich is best of the 2?
this is for a system that might run sims2 once in a while max...


Why do I use LINUX ? Cause its the BEST OS
Why do I use Windows? Cause its the BEST Nintendo..

  1. Neither. Both suck for the price.

    The Radeon 9000 PRO is better than both of 'em for $43 on pricewatch.

    But spend $60 and get yourself a nice Radeon 9550 128-bit edition. It is awesome for the price, and a true, usable DirectX 9 part.

  2. out of those 2, 9200SE

    But you can get a 9550 for abt 10 bucks more !!!

  3. Its not realy for my system I own an ASUS 9600 128 XT. Its for an extra system i have in my office. I would get a 9000 or 9550 but here in Ecuador there arent any... Only the 2 cards in my original post. And that sistem currently has an IGP from SIS so i betting that either one of those cards would be better.
    The other option might be Geforce2 MX, Geforce 440

    Let mw know what you think might work best

  4. might want to look for a gf4 ti 4200 they can be found for rather cheap.

    Watch out for the <b><font color=red>bloody</font color=red></b> Fanboys!

    AMD64 2800+ :: MSI Neo-Fis2r :: 1024mb Kingmax ddr400 :: Sapphire 9800pro 128mb :: 10K WD Raptor

    Addicted, finally.
  5. IN that case, find out if the 5200 has a 128-bit or 64-bit memory interface. (that's MEMORY INTERFACE, *not* MEGS OF RAM)

    If the 5200 has a 64-bit memory interface, get the 9200 SE.

    If the 5200 has a 128-bit memory interface, get the 5200.

    You might have to do a bit of research into the 5200 they offer, but the memory interface makes a big difference, so it's worth finding out.
    (Chances are it's a 64-bit 5200, unfortunately)

  6. Both of these are terrible cards.

    I recommend getting Radeon 9550 (beware of 64 bit memory versions)
