Which one is better...?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Man i need to buy a 'pci' card and i've narrowed down my choice to either a bfg 5500oc or a radeon 9250, both with 256mb.
I'm planning on oc so which would be the better choice

5500: i saw it a walmart for 129.99
9250: bestbuy 79.99

the price doesnot matter, me want good graphics, with "pci"

What ever you do, do not getteh 9250, i had the AGP version and it was crap and paid way to much, returned it and got a 9800PRO online. It cant play much of anything and it gave me problems.

Go with the 5500, even though its more it'll at least give you some decent gameplay on new games moreso than the 9250

Best bet is to save up and get an AGP motherboard since there are more GFX cards with AGP and PCI card are pretty much getting non-existent.
