GeForce4 MX (discrete) = obsolete technology and poor performance

If the 9200 Pro is not too much expensive over the regular, I'd go with that, or better yet, the 9100 (higher performance, almost-identical core with the Radeon 9200). If you can find a GeForce4 Ti 4200 under $100USD (~$137AUD), then go for that.
