    Hi all,

    I'm considering getting a new graphics card which can play the newer games. I've heard stuff on GeForce MXs and so am not particularly enthusiastic about buying one. What I'm considering are Radeons, particularly the 9200SE. It costs only Singapore 99 dollars here. My max budget is $150 Singaporean dollars. Anyone got suggestions?

    Not sure what the exchange rate is, I'll have to check it out, but the 9200 isn't bad. The 9500 128 is about $120 US.

    jeez, $120 US is about $205 Singaporean dollars. Guess I can't afford that.

    hummpp...here (im madison) the Radeon 9500 is also about from $70 to $99 (for the Real Radeons, not buy the companies that use the chipsets) $99 is about $180.13 singaporean....and $120 US = $218 singapore you may whant to look over at the FX line of cards from Invida... they seem to be cheaper here...

    I dunno... the price equivalent of a Radeon 9200($99 SGD) is a GeforceFX 5200($99SGD). From what I've heard, the radeon offers better performance for it's price.

    Don't go with the Radeon 9500, 9200's are better (performance wise).

    I've heard that 9000 PRO has better performance than the 9200. Anyone know if it is true? The pricing's about the same.
