Default OK, what am I missing here? Comparing a couple cards.

I'm comparing some cards on Newegg and found to evga Geforce 210 cards that seem to be identical exceptone is 512 meg and 23-bit and the other is 1 gig and 64-bit. Problem is, the 1 gig card is cheaper.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007709%2060000 7855%20600031507&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&ShowDeactivate dMark=False&CompareItemList=48|14-130-606^14-130-606-TS%2C14-130-605^14-130-605-TS

I'm also comparing those cards to this one (Radeon 4350):

I'm not familiar with Msi. How do they compare to eVga and specifically the cards above?

Only thing this card will be used for is in a Media PC connected to my TV to watch videos via XBMC. Don't care about overclocking or gaming or anything else.

Any opinions?

32 bit right? it's even slower

G210 is to slow anyway, but go with the 64bit card, if it's the same price, it's certainly a little bit faster...

but you can buy a 5450 for the same, it's a much better card.

or even better, if you can get this:

6450
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102933

$39.99
$29.99 after $10.00 rebate card

GT 520

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814134140

$49.99
Save: $10.00 (17%)
$34.99 after $15.00 rebate

Do any of those cards offer a significant benefit for just watching movies? This is just for XBMC. No gaming, no overclocking, no 3d anything, etc.

And how does the 4350 compare since that one is only $15 after the rebate.
