    Default ATI Radeon 9550, Good?

    Anyone have this video card? Wally World has it now for $124 http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=3910232
    But next Friday they're dropping it down to $59.99.... Glad I didn't buy it 2 weeks ago as planned...

    That card is not that good. Especially for gaming it sucks. I am sure you can find a Nvidia 6600 GT for nearly nothing nowadays.

    Yep, you can, and it's more than adequate, I find.

    What do you want the video card to do? Asking if it's good or not won't get you very good advice. What specificy are you looking to do with it? It might be an ideal card for your purposes, or it might be mediocre.

    Radeon 9550 is not the best choice if u want play games like Quake 4 of NFS most wanted it's something lik Gf 4 mx ... or even gf 2 series, so if u r looking for office perfomance it's your choice other wise u should look something at least GF 6600 like (ATI x700 series). That is my and only my opinion. good luck

    I bought that card a few months ago because it was a big upgrade from the crappy gforce 4mx 64mb card i had.

    I use it play a ton of games i own and i have ZERO problems with it.

    Its a great card for my w0w addicition.

    When I said, "what do you want to do with it?" I meant more along the lines of what resolutions do you want to run, and which games do you want to play. I'm sure it'll run everything just dandy at 640x480, but if you've got a 19" LCD are you going to want to do that?
