Instead of the gpu that vernon recommended. Get this one instead, it ends up being the same price as your 9600gt and MUCH better witht he dual slot cooling. - EVGA 512-P3-N800-TR GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

eVGA GeForce 8800GT 512MB PCI Express Video Card with dual slot cooling for $150 - $20 coupon VGA72320 - $20 rebate = $110 with free shipping.

Make sure you take advantage of the coupon and MIR, otherwise it's not a good deal.
But with the coupon, MIR, and free shipping it comes out almost cheaper then your 9600gt I think, and once again, much better.

If you have $160, pick yourself up a nice 4850. You can find them for $155, or so after MIR on newegg.
