Ok #1 I need to get a cheap card for my dads computer and when I say cheap I mean no more then 70 and looking for 60's so my ideas are these 3

 

Ati 9200 ati 9600se geforce fx 5200

 

 

#2 My next question is im buying a card for myself :) he cant have all the fun and im thinking about getting one of the refurb'ed newegg 9800 pro's ( dont have enough for 6800 yet :( ) ok so my choices are 9800 pro 128 mg and 9800 pro 256 mg how much of a difference will it make and which one will overclock the best.

For the next gen games coming out, you will want the 256mb 9800. However, if it's an option I would suggest just save your money. The 6800 is only$100 more and is a much better performer, it's worth saving for.

thanks everyone and for the guy that talked about the 6800 im thinking about saving up for one right after I get some sata hd's to set up a raid array heard those are quite an upgrade performance-wise....then I can have the 9800 pro in my other comp the 6800 in mine and finally get rid of this fx 5600
