Would the Radeon 9200 outperform the 9600 even though the latter card is an 'SE' version, or "shitty edition" as someone earlier pointed out?

I'm confused now... does the "SE" tag mean it is a better or lower performer to its non-SE graphic card counterparts?

Just had a quick look round the web and it does seem the "SE" cards are indeed a cut down version of the card. One site states the following :

SE implies the 64-bit memory interface.

The Sapphire 9600 XT runs just as well on 4x boards than it does on x8. I was going to buy it for mine. Its 256mb and looks pretty good

I've checked the HP site and it seems my Evo D510 (SFF) has a rather weak PSU. It is only 175Watts - would this be enough to handle one of the graphic cards mentioned earlier.

P.S This machine has performed flawlessly since I've had it, surely an extra video card won't cause too much hassle.

Here are the "QuickSpecs" for the D510 SFF

only 175watts... not very much. I would buy a new 400-500w psu and be on the safe side.
