Neither one of these are really video cards, they are video devices. They will play most 2D games with no problem, but trying to play a 3D game and you will be disapoinited. You can still buy a computer with one of these video devices installed, but make sure that the motherboard has a AGP or PCIx slot on it. Again if you are just going to use the computer for the internet, email, typing word docs, or playing simple 2D games you will be fine. But if you will be doing anything in 3D you will need a video card(ATI Radeon 9600+, or Nivida FX5200+). Hope that this helps.
