    Hi, I plan on replacing my 128mb 6600Gt 500mhz clock card with a Radeon X1650XT. I know the X1650XT is better than my old GT but by how much? The X1650XT is only $129 at newegg which has me a little worried. If the price is that cheap is it a good card? Also will I be able to run every game out? Thanks.

    I would also suggest the higher end cards. They are about the same price as what you are looking at.
    7600GT or 7900GS or 7900GT would be great choices.
    I have the XFX GeForce 7600GT and it runs every game i have flawless, including the very demanding Rainbow Six Vegas. I play FEAR with it all the time. In fact after rebate the 7600GT would actually save you money.
    here are some links.
