Default Which Video Card is Better?

http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...SubCategory=48

They both look the same to me. I need this card just for a basic computer with no heavy gaming. Would it be allright?

Go with the SAPPHIRE Radeon 9250 128MB 64-bit DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card It's the best one between these two ones and its cheaper

Never ever buy a 9200se!!! if your just using it for light gaming the 9250 should be alright,Just don't expect to play game's like half-life 2 or doom on anything more than the lowest setting's.

Yeah, never get 9200 SE. That is about one of the worst cards available, and is pretty much just a small, and I mean small step above integrated graphics. Go with the 9250.

I had a 9200SE for a while

This 9250 is a newer production model or something due to the higher number

also if i were you, i wouldn't buy a saphire product. i got the 9250 two weeks ago for my office computer and it died on me yesterday. i hate saphire and will never buy from them again. i'd spend a bit more to get a better brand. i also hate ati. i must seem like a very bitter person lol.

Be aware that ATI has now outsourced all their production to saphire, ATI no longer truely produces cards.
