I am thinking of upgrading my video card, but I'm getting pro & con input from friends .?

I am running an AMD Athalon 64 2800+, 1.80 Ghz. I currently have a GeForce 5700VE and am looking at a Saffire 100195L Radeon X1650 512 MB GDDR2 PCI Express x16 (I saw it a newegg - item number N82E16814102084 at a pretty good price). Will it work on my system? Will I see a noticable difference in video... show more I am running an AMD Athalon 64 2800+, 1.80 Ghz.

Will it work on my system? Will I see a noticable difference in video performance? Any other productive input would be helpful.
By the way...the $81 price tag is a huge factor in this choice.
Update: it is used mainly for gaming.
