I just want a few opinions on which card i should pick:
This One For 75.99
This One For 69.99
out of the two of those cards, i'd say the x1650 is better, but not by a huge amount. i personally prefer nvidia because i've never had a single graphics card from them fail, so i'd pay the extra $5 just for them. but honestly, if i were you, i'd cough up an extra $25 and get this:
that is probably 3x as powerful as the two that you listed. obvoiusly your building your computer on a budget, and i understand that, but $25 for a hell of a lot more power is worth it, and its more "futureproof" because its DX10.
The ATI has more pixel pipelines, more core clock, and more memory. "SK33TASTIC" makes a good point. There is one upgrade that you should always spend more on. Graphics. I looked @ Tiger D. and noticed a 7900 gs ko model. It has ddr3 instead of ddr2. 20 pixel pipelines, 500 mhz core clock, 1380 mhz memory, 44 GB's per sec. bandwith. It is listed @ $134.99 but has a $20 rebate. That's a great value and would give you better performance. Good Luck.
