The hd3650. Although if it's for gaming, none of them are enough for recent games.

Yup, I third. You can get an 8800GS which would be better than all of those.

The only thing is, the powercolor hd3650, the Leadtek PX-8500-GT and the Gainward 8500GT are real cheap, they are almost the same price, so between them, i was just wondering which is better performance wise?

they already answered your question, hd3650 is the better one performance wise plus its newer technology. There are some 8800gs around for a little more money. As boonality said, the 8800gs is a much better budget card, if you can find one for a similar price with rebates. I like the HD3XXX series because they have dynamic clock speed capability. That is they clock down and run a bit cooler when graphics demand is low.

Yeah you would be much better off ponying up for a 8800GS. Cheapest gaming card you can get. The difference between the onces you listed and the 8800GS is astronomical!
