I'd go for the 7900gs for sure if those are your only options. I've got one in my little bro's comp now and it plays great. It's definitely much more powerful than an x1650, that thing's not even close.

Try this

384mb GDDR3 XFX 8800GS XXX w/ COD4 $99 ($30 MIR)

Much better card and probably is in your price range. + COD 4!
Back to stay?
