Oem 8500le DOES have lowered clock rate. Still worth it?

    Is it still worth getting this -Sapphire ATI RADEON 8500LE Chipset(PAL, W/O 2nd RAM DAC, 128MB, 250/200, DVI, TV-Out) even though it doesn't have the second ram dac and slower clock rate than normal? (250/200 apposed to 250/250)

    I really want a 8500LE or 9000pro, and this is one of the best offers I have found (£80 from tekheads.co.uk). Is it worth getting this card, or should I keep looking for a 250/250 version?

    Thanks, Innus

    For that amount of money, I would suggest getting a NVidia Geforce4 TI4200.
    The MSI has a default core/memory speed of 250/550 and I've been able to get it up to 320/655 which would be over or close to the speed of a $250+ TI4600.
