I know I could go to a random tech site and ask this, but I feel an answer from here would be more personal.
How does a Nvidia Geforce 6200 256MB compare to a ATI radeaon 9600XT 128MB? I found with the 6200 it allowed me to play doom 3 on max settings, but other games I'm getting shit performance. I thought that because the VRAM was higher, the 6200 would be better, but I'm having doubts. I heard that some 6200's have 'TurboCache'. From what I know, the card actually only has a small amount of RAM and uses system RAM for most of it's processing.
With that, it might not matter. I may be getting some 512MB card (no idea on brand/model), but the price will be free, so can't complain.

The word is that nVidia seems to be better at rolling out brand new drivers. Since both cards have been out for a while, either should be fine.
Ah, that makes sense. To add to that, I've never had problems with my ATI 9600XT in it's ~7 years of life.
Edit: The ATI card I named has the benefit of being $28 cheaper.
Edit 2: I'm looking at my list and might spend a bit more and get a Radeon HD 6670 1Gb gddr5, not sure yet.
Edit 3: I'm slow and just realized it's AMD now and not ATI.
