Heh up until this machine i built, my last video card was a 9500 pro that i bought back in like 02 and used until about 06 when if finally just burned up. My 1650pro only lasted about 6 months though because it was mostly a placeholder until i built my new machine.

Heh an ultra from a 1650? My god it'll be night and day. I went to a gts320 from my 1650 pro and the difference was rediculous.
