Planning to buy a new grafx card for my system.
#1
Question 
Ok guys so i'm buying a new grafx card in a month or so. What card would you recommend? i need a mainstream level card not going higher than 130$. Also, if i buy a new grafx card and replace it with my onboard GF6150, will it up the performance?
Ok, so i'm not buying from any specific online store, so i only got some choices:
1. Saphire Radeon HD5670 512MB GDDR5
2. GeForce 9500GT 1GB
3. GeForce 9600GT 1GB
4. HD 4770

At the moment i only have these choices as i haven't checked some stores, which might have better cards, but i'll update the list. So, which card would be best, mostly pcsx2?

thx for the advice, to tell the truth it's perfect since it don't need a 6-pin connector, and it's low-power consumming. But i'm still searching

You mean that funky extra 6-pin power plug a bunch of newer cards need? There are adapter that go from 2 4-pin molex to the 6-pin thingy if you've got the PSU headroom and open plugs to use it.

Its early in the 5xxx series lifespan, so you will probably get a bit more performance with future updates, ATI is nice like that.

ATI Radeon Sapphire Vapor-X HD5750. The best bang for your buck.
