Default Which one is best?

I'm planning to play Half-Life 2, but my motherboard only has PCI slots. Which PCI video card should I go for playing CS:S with?

1. Radeon 9250
2. Radeon 9200
3. FX 5500
4. FX 5200

Also, I saw a Radeon 9200se. Should I go with one of those?

Why do you have processors on there as well? In that case you would need 2 answers

Video cards- 9250
CPU- Fx-55

my friend can play HL2 fine with a fx5200, but he's using AGP

so you gotta go fx5500, but dunno how that'll perform using PCI

??????????? :amazed:
I think the fx5500 will play it ok on low settings, even if it is PCI. You could try to seach for some benchs but I am guessing finding a bench of a PCI fx5500 on CS:S would be hard to find.

That card is the biggest piece of crap you will ever see,Believe me i found out the hard way Even with game's on the lowest setting's it will lag big time.
