    I'm not sure about the PC equivalents, but I had to make the same decision for my Cube a few years back. My choices were the GeForce2 MX (32mb) or the Radeon OEM (32 mb). Game performance was pretty much a wash. The deal breaker for me was DVD playback, at which the Radeon excels. I don't do a ton of gaming, but I do watch movies like it's my job. That said, I've been absolutely thrilled with my Radeon. I'd recommend it highly.

    Boy - am I ecstatic now!

    I just got myself a Radeon 7500 on eBay for my Cube - and am about to experience a new level in entertainment (considering the stock Rage 128 SUCKS badly at Medal of Honor with DREADFUL framerates...).

    As far as I've seen, the 7500 is the best card you can get for the Cube without having to do too much plastic surgery (just adapt the card's fence, and you're laughing!).


    :D

    Yeah, I upgraded from my Radeon a few months ago. I'm running a GeForce3 now, and I just have to tell you that it's BAD!!!!!!! Seriously man, enjoy that 7500. If it's anywhere close to the GeForce3 then you're going to be in heaven. Congrats!
