The Radeon 9250 would be the fastest card out of that selection.

Has the fastest memory and core speeds

BTW: That X300 you linked is PCI-Express not PCI, it's completely different and your mobo won't support it

also, the ATI's i listed above are 64 bit and the Geforce is 128 bit.

what does the "bit" stand for? does it make a huge difference? I know these cares arent top of the line mainly because their pci, and i only have a pci slot now and its gonna be until next year until i get my new motherboard/cpu combo so i'd appreciate it if you guys just told me which card is the best that i listed above.
thanks alot!

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProdu...-145-055&depa=1 Nvidia Geforce FX5200. ( i dunno why people always says this card sucks. its core speed and effective speed is faster than any of the cards i listed above)

also, the ATI's i listed above are 64 bit and the Geforce is 128 bit. The geforce also scored higher than the 9200,9200se on this website : http://graphics.tomshardware.com/gr...-charts-03.html

Because they know what they are talking about and I'll answer that question for you. It may have a faster core and memory speed, but that doesn't mean jack if it doesn't have the same capabilities of the other cards. The 5200 is a mainstream model opposed to the performance model which is FX 5700 and up...

Read about it here:

http://www.nvidia.com/page/fx_desktop.html

It tells you what the differences are between the performance and mainstream

ok, i'm trying to decide between three video cards. The ATI Radeon 9200, 9250, or the Feforce FX5700LE.
