But the x1600 has DDR memory, which sucks on a vCard.

Yeah, told you it would be a good idea :\

Why won't they let you get another video card?

Default Choice of 2 Graphic cards

The best out of the 2 you said he could choose from is the X1600 PRO ATI card.

Simple facts, its a faster card and the core speeds are very different. Also, a friend of mine just purchased that specfic card and it plays Battlfield 2 on full graphics with no slowdown which is certainly saying something.

Hope this helps!!!
