Question Out of these 2 cards, which is better?

Geforce FX5500 256mb, 270mhz core, 400mhz memory

or

Geforce FX6200 128mb, 300mhz core, 550 mhz memory


The 6200 is obviously a faster card, but the 5500 has double the memory.... The 6200 is $20 more expensive, and I'm upgrading from a GF4 Ti4400.

Obviously the 6200 will give you better rendering performance over the 5500, speaking strictly of polygons and lighting/effects, but with the lower memory, games might not look as pretty, if they have to scale down the texture detail, since 256mb of textures just won't fit into 128mb of memory.

most games will usually "auto detect" the settings when you install it (The game)

I just got my internet up and running again. I ended up getting the 6200. My GF4 Ti4400 was starting to flake and lock up my system.
