Default Radeon x800xl or x1600pro?

i have a pentiumD 3.4ghz,1g ram and a ati radeon x800xl 256meg pci-e video card.
i cannot plaqy splinter cell double agent with that card cuz it as shader model 2.0 and not 3.0.
i am checking to buy an ati radeon or sapphire radeon x1600pro 512meg pci-e.
will it be a good choice over my current card?

X1600pro is not good card.

get at least 7600GT or 7900GS

Even the 7600GS is better than X1600pro
