The Radeon 9600 SE supports the new DirectX 9 features, however, it's performance is extremely crippled, due to its 64-bit wide memory bus, down to Radeon 7500-level. The same can pretty much go for the GeForce FX 5600 XT.

If you can live without DirectX 9 support, I'd recommend either the Radeon 9200 or the 9100; more towards the 9100.
