I have integrated graphics and need a video card for playing some games like cod4. I know I will also have to up grade the power source as its only 280w. Ive been looking at Tiger direct and some computer stores but there are so many video cards out there its confusing the heck out of me. I also heard the game Crisis takes a pretty good card and Im considering buying it. Any suggestions? I have 2.33 Core 2 Quad and 6gb ram.

Tiger Direct has 2 on sale for $59.00

XFX Geforce 9600 GSO
768 MB DDR2

EVGA Geforce 9500 GT
1 GB DDR2

Are these very good cards?

Both those graphics cards would be fine for playing a game such as CoD4. They both have fairly similar features, but personally I would go with the 9600 GSO as it's performance would most likely make up for it's lack of memory.

I finally decided to buy a xfx Geforce gtx260 and then found out its to big to fit in the box. Does anyone know if the 250 series is physically smaller or what would be an equivalent of the 260 that is small enough to fit?
