Well, putting it to ya honestly, that graphics card is a complete P.O.S. If you want to max out those games, you need a 6600GT at a bare minimum, which I think is around $250.

5900 will be a little better. It would be better to get a Radeon 9800 Pro though. Stay away from the GeForce FX series please...its crap.

9800xt is pretty much a waste of money. If you are going to do that, it would be much more cost effective to go with a 6600GT or one of the lower X800s.

Try your best to stay out of the 5XXX series. They are really not up to task for DirectX9 applications, the newer games. 6600 is your best bet. Try your best to save up for it.

Yeah, 9800 Pro still maxes out most games, and 6600GT will definately do it.

6600GT AGP will do it, and is around 200$

9800 Pro is a bit lower, but much lower peformance
