    hi, for what your going to use the card my the isnt much difference (and may i just say they are both great cards) for me i would go for the Gigabyte Radeon 9600 Pro as i am very much into games. I would advise that you get the cheeper one because vid cards are impoving so quick your gonna have to get a newer one soon after if you start playing real hi-tech games

    The Radeon 9600 supports DX9 features which the 4200 doesn't have (better water effects in HL2 for example) so I would go with that one.
