Currently these cards are both priced a bit high for how they perform, i suggest a 8600 gt if your on a budget and using low resolution. but i highly reccomend the 8800gt or 9800 gt. if those are too much try out a 9600 gso, 8800gs or 9600gt. mjake sure your power supply can handle these cards i reccomend 25 or more amps on the +12v rail. if power is a issue check out the ati hd 4670 great bang for the buck card and it consumes less power.

Hi, this is an older motherboard, so you are limited to what you can do. Below is a list of potential upgrades, depending on your power supply, but if you want to play modern games you will still struggle, but older games are OK. Radeon 9600 series Radeon X1600 (AGP only) Radeon X1900 (AGP only)
RECOMMENDED SYSTEM CONFIGURATION: Windows 2000/XP Procesador P IV 3GHz/AMD Athlon 3000+ (3GHz for Celeron) 1 GB RAM Video card: GeForce 6800/ATI Radeon X800 Sound card DX 9 compatible 700 MB of free space on hard drive DirectX 9.0c
Please note that video cards that do not support hardware pixel shaders
version 2.0 or better do not fully meet the game's minimum spec and
will therefore suffer performance issues. The Game was not tested with onboard graphics cards, including laptops. Supported
video cards at time of release: nVidia GeForce 6600, 6800, 7600, 7800,
7900, ATI Radeon: 9800, X800, X1300, X1600, X1800. X1900
if your system specifications cannot met the games requirements, sorry to say this but you cannot play the game.
I have a similar card and experienced a similar problem on my AlienWare notebook.
Go to task manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del), select the "Processes" tab and look for "Rich Video.exe".
Select it and click "End Process".
Restart the game. If this works, the best thing to do is disable the service (Start > Run > Services.msc) or delete the startup registry (Start > Run > Regedit >> HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Run > Delete the RichVideo entry.)
Well, this pretty much comes down to how much $ or € or any other currency you're willing to spend as well as what games you're most likely to play.
If you don't wanna spend a fortune but still get a very good and reasonable performance, you could try GeForce 7600 GT or 7800 GT [7800 GT being better]. Both of these can be had quite cheaply these days. If you want something even more powerful that doesn't require you to sell a kidney on E-bay, then try GeForce 8800 GT, more precisely MSI NX8800GT-OC. Compared to ordinary 8800GT's, this one's beefed up just a bit more. Alternatively - if you can find that specific mode - almost any would do; still, I'd recommend Asus EN8800GT.
As you may have noticed, I've suggested only nVidia cards: I've never been too much into ATI + nVidia is leading the race these last few months. However, if you want to swing ATI way, then instead of 7800 GT find yourself a some ATI 1950 XT or whatever they call it. It is roughly equivalent to the 7800.
For high end ATI's, look for 3850 HD or something akin to that - there's a lot of review online.
Remember: read reviews first - shop later.
P.S. Make sure your PCI-Express x16 slot really is a x16 by reading your motherboard manual.
