Is Ati 9800 better than my gpu(You are said "9800" but what 9800 is,is if Nvidia geforce 9800 or Ati 9800).If you are not seen my gpu in my previous reply it is Nvidia 6150se.

Given VisionTek are one of the brands that only do AMD/ATI cards, I meant an ATI 9800 - but it was just a throwaway comment, I've no idea what card you could theoretically receive, other than the fact it's old.

If you have $15 to burn, I'm sure you could find a card that would be a step up from what you have, and a known quantity.
The 6150se is integrated into the motherboard, so almost anything semi-modern would be a step up. Not sure where you're located, but you'd be factoring in shipping from Visiontek to wherever you're located, most likely.

As an example, for ~$25 USD, you can have a GT730 with free worldwide shipping:

It's not a great card by any stretch, but as a guarantee of what you're getting, it's a heck of a lot better than some of the potential cards you could receive from Visiontek for $15+Shipping.

Local used sites might yield better results. I've picked up some good GPUs for $50 CAD or less (<$40 USD) including R9 280's, GTX 760's etc. All depends on the local supply/demand though.

I am located in Bosnia(If you are wondering).And I was looking for GT 730s on ebay but it is like 40$(with shipping).I will see that on AliExpress.
