Looking at the components in your rig, you probably bought from Alienware, right? The ALX? (Just a guess.)
As long as you have a valid recipt that proves you purchased the card, you can step up to any other card (Within 90 days.). If I were you, I'd get the GTX 512, just becasue you probably have the money, and that it will not be very far off from the ATI at all.
If eVGA cannot supply you with a 512, don't get the plain GTX, just get the 1900. It will not be worth it to go from a GT to GTX.
As a matter of fact, if you can, return the Pre-built and build your own. For that same price, you will get a much
better rig. That is a fact. (Unless you have connections.)
