It is exactly the same as a 4200 but 200mhz slower (can be matched with a simple overclock.)

That sound card will be useless. Either get a good one or use on board.

Also good ATI card manufactureers are HIS, Sapphire and Connect3d (I think I would go that order too.) I prefer BFG to eVGA for Nvidia.
