I'm looking for a new graphics card to replace my old Radeon x1950 Pro.

What I've been thinking of are the GTX 275, HD 4890 and HD 4850x2 - my question is - would I have no problem running ANY of those cards on my BFG NVIDIA nForce 650i Ultra motherboard, Q6600, 6 gigs of Corsair XMS2 memory and Antec 650W PSU.

I'm specifically concerned whether my motherboard can take those cards with no problem. If it can, which one would You get?

depending on your wallet ...
how old is the motherboard if its more than 2 years i would use it as a backup board and buy a new 1 and start fresh
better to sick with a asus or gigabyte board
if not it shouldnt be a problem going by memory but just do i quick google search to double check

I can get any of those three cards, just don't know which one. The new motherboard would be an issue, that is why I am asking if this one can do fine. - Here's some info about it. I bought it in December 2007.

I'm leaning towards the MSI Cyclone HD 4890 or any of the GTX 275. Any advice?
