9800gt eco, why is that it is with in budget and doesn't require a power connector. Next cards in line are a GT 240/430/440 or a 5670 from ati.

What exactly is your power supply rated for and it's brand?

Look at the cards here http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-6950-1gb-..., pick one that will match your power limitations.

Radeon 4670 and 5670 both don't need additional power from the PSU, may work well for you.

A 9600 card in a system drew just under 200 watts of full system power, a Radeon 5770 was maybe 10-15 watts over that.

OK, what is the difference between 256-bit and 128-bit graphic cards?
And what do you think is better when 5670 and 9600gt is compared?

All other things being equal, a 256 bit card is better than a 128 bit card, it has more bandwidth for the memory (the "pipe" size than data flows on).

As far as comparing 2 video cards, look here http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu_list.php, put in the models you want to find, you'll get a speed test result and a rank based on the other cards in the chart.
