    PowerColor Radeon 9200 SE Review

    Bottom Line: With all the excitement of the high end video cards on the market today, we tend to forget that not all of us have $300-$500 to spend. Today, PowerColor brings us the Radeon 9200 SE. Aimed at the budget consumer for as little as $53 retail, we put it to the test and find out if the performance is worth the price.

    Conclusion

    While the GeForce FX 5200 clearly beat the 9200 SE, it also costs more and does not include a DVI port like the 9200 SE. The PowerColor 9200 SE is a solid card at the budget consumer level and are meant for those who are not heavily into games but might opt to play them once in a while. It proves it can play recent games at decent levels as the benchmarks were stressing the cards to their max. Lowering the quality and resolution would improve frame rates. The heatsink on the GPU is enough to keep the card cool and is quiet. The low profile bracket is also useful for those who have cramped cases and does not use a LCD monitor. All in all, the PowerColor Radeon 9200 SE is a solid buy for those on a tight budget and want to play current games.
