Re: ATI Radeon 9250 or e-GeForce FX 5500
He already stated, not to give him any other options, so I just try to answer his question. In which case, the FX5200 is better than the 9250, in terms of supporting a higher DirectX version and a higher pixel shader version. Being $10 more than the 9250, it doesn't matter, because both wouldn't do much in terms of gaming. So go with the cheapest one, in this case, the 9250.
