can any of these graphics handle decent video games?
256MB ATI Radeon XPRESS 200 Graphics
128MB NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Graphics
+ which is the best

You mean recent stuff like F.E.A.R., Oblivion, Quake 4 etc.? No.

Which is best? Dunno. Both very poor.

You should be looking for a GPU that has it's own VRAM. For PCIe, there's no point in plumping for anything less than the new 7600GT, imo. That'll do a decent job.

You choice is dependent on whether your MOB has PCIe or AGP!

Well, ATI Radeon XPRESS 200 Graphics is an integrated PCIe GPU, so PCIe is a given.

Get something decent!

No they can't if you mean games like FEAR. If you mean older games then in a lot of cases yes. They are both pretty poor really. Modern games need a lot more grunt than either of these would give.
