I recommend the X1650Pro, but whatever you decide, just make sure you get a AGP 4x card. Might want to look on your motherboard and just triple check that it has an AGP slot.

Them cards wont get there maximum performance with just 4x since they are meant for 16x.

But if you have the money for them then it will be ok (maybe invest in a motherboard later on to get the full potential of the card)
