Default Between 2 Graphics Cards

I narrowed it down to 2 graphics cards:
I am pretty sure they are both compatible with my Dell Dimension 2350.
Intel Celeron Processor 2.2GHz
768MB DDR Ram
Current Graphics: Intel Integrated 845G 64MB
30GB Harddrive

CHAINTECH P-FX20 256MB Geforce FX5200 256MB 128-bit DDR PCI Video Card


PNY VCGFX55PPB Geforce FX5500 128MB 128-bit DDR PCI Video Card

Please HELP! Thank You!

For a card about $100 I would go with geforce fx5700 series. I have one and it's great, I can play games like doom3 and HL2 with the highest setting.

Even at your budget, the 5200 is a waste of money. I've got one with the same specs, it's pathetic.

You'll be bitterly disappointed.

Trust me.

Delete the thousands from the cards numbers.
And...what you've got: 500 vs 200.
Obviously the higher number is more powerful...
