GeForce 4 TI4200 > FX 5600 > FX 5200 > 9200

Quite ironic how a DX8.1 card could outperform a DX9 card in DX8.1 games, even in DX9 games like Halo and Farcry.

The TI4200 can be bought for atleast $60 at Pricewatch.com.

9550. Not a bad card either.

Is it any different from the 9500?

Try to get less memory, like around 64mb-128mb. Sometimes companys tends to use inferior memory because it's alot cheaper and such. None the less, these budget cards are not even fast enough to run that much ram.
