Default what's better

I currently have a Nvidia mx4000 128mb(yeah shut up, I know what's coming) gfx card in my office rig. I got the opportunity to obtain a radeon 9200se for $15-$20. Is it worth the upgrade? I know it's the entry level card from 2004?iirc but I was wondering which would perform better. thanks

Although it's better, I don't think it's significantly better. I don't think you would be gaming on it, so no, I don't think it's worth the upgrade.

Use that $20 and buy yourself something nice instead.

the current card holds up just fine on cod and cs/dod. Most of my gaming consists of dod anyway lol and I don't even game a lot on the office computer. I was thinking of purchasing cs:s but the 9200se prob couldn't handle it anyway
