Question Which videocard will be better?

ok me and my friend were thinking about this because he wants to buy the better one out of these two ok so which one is better?

1.e-vga geforce fx5500 256mb amd 128 bit.


2. Asus geforce 6200 128mb and 64 bit

please we would appreciate the help but i am just noy sure on this one. He wants it foe budget gaming too like low end games so i told him these two would be good but does anybody know which one is better? ok thanx guys.

-AMD x2 5200+
-Asus M3A78-EM AM2+
-Buffalo 2x1gb ddr2 800
-Hitachi 250gb Sata HDD

Thats a tough choice but i am going to have to say the 6200 because of the higher clock and memory speed plus it has shader 3.0

personally i would say neither

but seeing as you really have no choice

i would still say neither
look at the ati side of things
i have had much better experiences with their lower end cards compared to nvidia's

i would say something like this

this one would oc like nothing but it does cost a bit more
