Id say the 9400 if Had to choose one, those x1550s are OLD... The 9400 atleast supports Dx10. Put it this way, the 9400gt performs a bit slower then the x1950 pro, which admitedly is a much better card then the x1550.

Can I ask what the purpose of the card is?

I think a 9400GT vs a HD4350 is a more fair comparison. That X1550 is just too old to be compared to a current card.

Make that three. You forgot about the 2xxx series.

If you're going to use this card in a HTPC, grab an ATI card. Aside from that it's hard to say anything else without knowing what you're thinking about using this card for.
