  1. Greetings,

    I have an extremely crappy motherboard that only supports PCI (i845GV I think) and as such want a videocard that will replace my Integrated Graphics chip. I did some research and found some reasonable performing videocards, the PNY Verto GeForce FX 5500 128MB DDR ($200US), the VisionTek Xtasy 9200 256MB DDR ($200US), and the Powercolor Radeon 9250 256MB DDR ($100US). Obviously I need them for gaming needs. Which one performs the best in new release games? And do any of these brands ship to Australia? (I think that Powercolor does but just to be sure). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thankyou.

    The 5500 is better. The 9200's are crap for gaming. But try to find an FX5700LE. Thats the best PCI card you can get and they arent too expensive.
