Choice of new Video Card

  1. I have a very humble system and do not need the 'best' card out there. I am now using a Geforce 256 32MB card. I have seen two cards so far that seem like they will fit my budget; Radeon 9200SE 128 MB and Nvidia GeForce4 MX4000 128MB. Does anybody have any advice or info on what I should choose on my severely limited budget?

    Well, neither of the cards are caple of the newer DX9 features like hardware T&L, etc. Out of the two, I would go with the 9200SE, but that's just because I'm an ATI fanboy. I had a 9200SE before I migrated to a 9600XT, and I had no complaints.

    You're not going to be able to play some of the newer games at a higher resolution, but for everyday usage, those cards are more than adequate.

    I prefer GeForce cards, but I would take the 9200SE over the MX4000... Agreed, you will not see much of a difference.
