I would do a search for the benchmarks of both cards. The 6200 is newer but lower end. The 9600 is kind of dated, but will probabally still perform decently. You can always overclock the 6200 a bit.

Yeah the 9600 is a little dated but I would buy it over a 6200. The 6200 is just a lower end card.

well the xt is better than the pro.............however i would still go with the pro if it is significantly cheaper. The 9600pro will give you better performance than the 6200. If there is a good 9600xt for cheap then get that. don't spend too much on ti though. If you are going to spend a $100 then I'd say go with this card. It's what I ahve and I love it. It's perfect for any budget build. Asus 6600:

I payed $130 for mine right bdefore Christmas but now it has dropped to $97 on sale. If you can reach to $100 then I'd go with that.

just keep your celeron and go for a new videocard, and more ram. If you get that Sempron you will see better performance, but it is better to get more ram and a new videocard for gaming.
