    I want to upgrade my PC with a new GPU (my birtday is coming soon )
    There are two solutions:

    NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 (128MB DDR) & ATI RADEON 9200 SE (128MB DDR)

    The GeForce card is more expensive (about $30-35 , than the ATI)

    Is the GeForce card worth the money, or should I rather get a ATI ?

    P.S.

    My current GPU is "nVidia GeForce 2 MX/MX 400 (64MB)

    :helpsmile: me to choose ...

    both r the same. i used to have a geforce 5200, and they work pretty damn well. not sure bout the se part of the 9200. try getting the regular. usually the se is not as good as the original.

    Depends on the brand. SE can mean Second Edition, which would be an improved edition, such as the G4MX440 SE, which is better than the regular MX440. The 5900SE, however, isn't as good as the 5900. About ATI.... well they are a mess as well, but their SE's are usually the "sorry-ass" editions lol

    they&#39;re called "special" edition, but sorry ass works too. lol. compare the specs of a 9600 and a 9600se, and the 9600 is better, also a bit more expensive. in ur case, a reg 9200 can compare to a geforce 5200. a se is 9200 jr. dont&#39; get it. in fact, if u want, get the 5200. i&#39;ve had experience, and many others here have it now, or have had it. and most of them have had pretty good experiences

    So why did you sell yours anyway? I found out that the best card they sell over here is a 5600, and haven&#39;t seen something more than a 9200 (se?) on a computer shop. I think I&#39;m gonna wait until they bring the 5900 or I&#39;m gonna ship it here (grrr 50&#036; shipping or something like that)

    Thanx for the "sorry-ass" part, i didn&#39;t knew that normal edition are better than SE.
    So, I gues it&#39;s better to invest a little bit more money and get a GeForce FX 5200

    The better thing would be save up more and get a 5600

    It&#39;s around 120-160 US dollars. However, the difference from the 5200 is a lot, so my first pick would be save up for a 5600 because it would be worth while more than the 5200.

    ATI cards are most of the time faster than nVidia&#39;s... But the drivers are still a problem with the ATI cards... So it&#39;s better to buy proven good stuff, and nVidia can provide you that...
