better low profile card

Building a system for my parents, and I am looking for the better low profile card. Here are some choices I have come across:

Radeon 9600SE 64 bit
Radeon 9200SE 64 bit
Radeon 9550 64 bit

They arent gamers, but my dad might want to try a flight sim or 2 every now and then. Are the 9550's just rebadged 9600SE's?

  1. All 64-bit cards suck. There's got to be a 128-bit low profile card out there... look hard.

    9550 64-bit arte the same as 9600SEs, but 9550 128-bit cards are basically 9600 non-pros. Clocked slightly lower on the core, but they have massive overclocking potential.
