I am needing a new graphics card and not sure which way to go....

I have a 3.0P4 with 1.5g of RAM (good asus mobo), I have a 9600 now and need somthing new for my new games (fear and company of heros).

It needs to be AGP I will build new next year about this time (birthday) and cant afford to now.

Would a 1950pro be overkill for my system and a 7600gt be more budget friendly and still play well. I know anything will be a big improvement over what I have now.

I am leaning toward the HIS1950pro....

Thank for any help

x1950PRO is much better than the 7600 as I'm sure you know. But you may have to fork out extra cash for a Power Supply.

For a x1950PRO, you need a PSU with:
26 Amps on the 12V rails minimum
30+Amps recommended

Either an X1650XT, 7600GT, or a 7800GS would give you a huge boost. The 7800GS is only the better card if you're into OCing. At stock they all perform very similar.
