I have some older computers that I am parting out and selling on ebay. So, I have an extra video card that I am going to try to sell. However, I don't know if I should keep this card and sell one of the ones in my computer. Any help?

I am running dual monitors.

According to dxdiag display 1 is a Radeon X1300/X1550 Series
display 2 is an ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Series.

The video card that is currently not installed is a Radeon 9600 XT 128M.

To effectively run dual monitors, and maybe some games here and there, (I'm not big into gaming at all really. . .) which video cards should I keep?

(I tried researching it myself via google, but I get lost in the computer "mumbo jumbo" Sorry!)

Honestly that is a tough call. The 9600 was a good card and I think better than the X1300. However the 9600 only supports up to Shader model 2 so any of the games that need shader model 3 like bioshock, need for speed, call of duty, or others will not run. I would have to stick with the X1300 just for that reason. It is the only reason I gave up my X800XT when I did.
