    Personally.....

    .....I'd go with either one of the Sapphire cards (Pro, I'm assuming). I've had nothing but rock-solid performance with them in the past...currently using an X1900XTX. Whether you go with the 256MB or the 512MB version is a matter of personal preference and funds, but I'd opt for the higher memory if you can afford it. Make sure you order the AGP version of the card if that's what you need.

    My $.02.
