And for not silly amounts of money what should I opt for next for a good improvement as I have noticed some slow down here and there in games like modern warfare two.

I got nowhere over 3 months trying to get an X1650 Pro replaced, with most of my emails not being replied to and them wanting me to pay for return shipping AND a fee! That alone will keep me from buying their products again.

There's also the XFX, MSI, ASUS and Gigabyte offerings there too. Your choice between those would come down to either price, clock speeds, or brand affiliation. Clock speeds between the ones on Amazon aren't that different and will all perform about the same. So for me it'd be price. The Sapphire and MSI versions are the cheapest, MSI cheaper by a few pennies, but the Sapphire has a better cooler/enclosure design, instead of the stock ATI one that all the others have, so that's the one I'd go for. I find customer services bad everywhere, so just hope that things actually work. When I bought by computer I really wanted BFG cards, coz they had the best clock speeds at the time and good reviews, but when it came down to it it didn't matter that I got BFGs instead of any other brand, because Nvidia's drivers made all the cards suck anyway.
