The problem is the GDDR2, it is slower than the GDDR3 of the GT model, it is still a nice card, but yes it is slower.

The X1650 is a nice card though, and has GDDR3, I don't know much about the performance comparison between these two cards, so I will leave it to the others here to help you decide. I do know these are probably going to be the best ones in your range though, unless you find a used 7600GT.

The 7600GT is a better performer tha the 7800GS all day in every benchmark. The X850xxx is as fast as it gets for AGP but you not be able to use HDR or SM3. The Gainward is near impossable to get here in the states not to mention it's cost like 400-500 dollars far from worth it.

For just WoW he'll do fine with a 6600 Vanilla. For stuff like Oblivion a 7600 at least. The gainward, while super sweet as far as AGP goes, is overkill and probably out of your price range. If you're still set on getting one I have some trusted hardware connections in England I can set you up with.

so it looks like its between the 7600 GS and the X850xxx. the 850 has gdr 3 right but no HDR. He doesnt care about HDR I would assume but sm3 might be a problem.

What would you pick? 7600 GS or the X850xxx that was mentioned?

Unless you're just going to be playing older games you'll want the card with the 3.0 Shader Models.

And use what's left to get a new PSU if he needs it.

EDIT: Nevermind, Steveo, he needs AGP!
