Default Upgrading from Intel grachics

Hello all, I am currently looking into buying a new graphics card.

I am trying to decide whether to buy:


Newegg.com - XFX HD-575X-ZNFC Radeon HD 5750 1GB 128-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Or Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N971-TR GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Should i look into anything else?
I'm not looking into anything hardcore, just want want to play some new games with decent Fps'.

Both of those require a PCI-e power connection, do you have one on your power supply? If not I can help you find a graphics card that's still decent but doesn't require that connection..

Video Card: ASUS ENGTS450 DIRECTCU/DI/1GD5 GeForce GTS 450 (Fermi) 1GB 128-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
I would recommend this card, its faster for about the same price.
