I currently have a HP Pavilion a6745f Desktop PC : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docnam
and i currently wish to upgrade the graphics card for gaming as well as the power supply to cope with the new video card. I chose my power supply, however i can't figure out which video card is best.
My choices are:
EVGA 01G-P3-N959-TR GeForce 9500 GT 1GB 128-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card :http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8
VisionTek 900181 Radeon HD 2600PRO 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8
Which one is the best for gaming? Or are there any video cards you can recommend that are within the same price range ( up to $100 max) and computer limitations?
The power supply i'm thinking of getting

First let me tell you that the PS cx500 is a decent choice. I owned it since June and it works like a charm with my hp p6230f and HD 6770 video card.
With 100$ budget on video card I will go with HD 6670
74.99 $ after rebate AT Tigerdirect
Another Powerful choice is GTS 450, better the the previous one
