Default Which 4650 agp do i pick

im stuck on an agp bus on this old haunkin dell dimension 4600 i have a 450w psu i put in the system now all i want to do is play wow at nice settings which of these 3 should i pick ?
NCIX.com - Buy Sapphire Radeon HD 3850 512MB GDDR3 AGP 2XDVI HDCP HDTV Out Video Card - 100228L In Canada.
3850 with ddr3 512mb or
4650 with 1gb ddr2
NCIX.com - Buy XFX Radeon HD 4650 600MHZ 1GB 800MHZ DDR2 AGP8X Dual DVI-I HDCP TV Out Video Card - HD465XZPF2 In Canada.

finaly there is a 4670 with 1gb ddr3 NCIX.com - Buy Powercolor Radeon HD PCs 4670 750MHZ 1GB 1.6GHZ GDDR3 DVI VGA TV-OUT AGP Video Card - AG4670 1GBK3-P In Canada.

but i think its exesive and poor in performence for it price.

all i really want is to play wow at 1280x1024 at descent settings till i have the funds to build something good which wont happen till i pay off a cellphone debt.

The HD 4670 for sure.

HD 4650 < HD 3850 less than or equal to HD 4670

HD 4670 would be my pick, best card, low power consumption, and unlike the HD 3850 it won't take a severe performance hit when you throw in AA.

I'd just go with the cheapest to get you by. At $116 even thats the price of some 4850's. The $144 is up there with 4870s soo.

Maybe you can find a 7900GS or 7950GT AGP for rather cheap, check eBay.

my worry is this 2.8ghz p4 will bottle neck me to the point a hd 4670 would be pointless i might aswell save a couple bucks and go with the hd4650 by xfx but im unsure of how itl perform with that ddr2 mem
