Trying to play Command and conquer 3 at the highest possible setting.

Here is my old rig
AMD 3000+ OC from 1.8 to 2.1
DDR400 1GB @ 235mhz
geforce 6200LE(meh)

here is what I have chosen so far
SAPPHIRE 100176L Radeon X1950PRO 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E1681...

COOLMAX CP-500T EPS12V 500W Power Supply 115/230 V UL, CSA, TUV - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E1681...

or

EVGA 256-P2-N615-TX GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681...


I'm open to any suggestion.
I want to get the highest possible setting(AA/AS) on this. I will not be upgrading this system! only the gfx and PSU.

Thanks a lot!

I haven't seen that game benchmarked to know if it's cpu bound or GPU bound. But you could add another card to your list: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

$10 more than the 7600GT, but much faster. And it should OC to X1950 pro speeds. But sounds like you'll need a PSU also.

So 1950GT is not as good as 1950pro? is 1950pro OCable?

will that PSU be enough?
