Hi,

if I understand what's on the wiki correctly, it is not possible to use an ATI "Radeon HD 3650" card for mining, right?

Best regards,

That is correct, since that series (ATI HD 3000) does not support OpenCL at all.
Pick something from that "Mining hardware comparison" that has a big number in the Mhash/s column. Also look for a small number on the Watts column if you want to save electricity and CO2

fyi newegg has a xfx 6950 for $230 and then a $30 rebate and 2 free games, not a bad deal.  the 6950 is doing about 320 Mhash/s at 810 MHz

Yep. And buying a new one just for mining currently doesn't seem too profitable. See http://bitcoinx.com/profit/ to calculate costs and income.

My ~700MHash/s give me ~0.4BTC/day. This is currently less than 3$ per day. This is roughly the same amount of money my rig consumes in electricity. I am lucky not to pay for this electriciy but I cannot scale up as this "free" electricity is part of a "fair use" deal and I guess I am already stretching the deal a bit.

Mine is running about 400 MHash/s each by just adding the flags -v -w128 -f0
