From my understanding the 500 = 2 150's

The 1045 is the best bet.. 
1042 is the MCE model, you may want not really care for this one.. 

No need for 250 since chips on 150 are now the same

Stay away from 350 

and becareful when buying 150's sometimes HVR 1600's come in the box, return 
it if it is.. Since no linux drivers are made for the 1600 at this time. 

Don't bid on cards on ebay.. Because I am 


How much can you know about yourself, you've never been in a fight? I don't 
wanna die without any scars. So come on; hit me
