Default EVGA nVidia GeForce 9600GT for my 1080p?

I have a 22® ViewSonic 1080p monitor. I am a moderate gamer, i like to mess with video editing and adobe CS4. I am not a Crysis player or fallout 3 or anything, I just want to really see the 1080p in effect! Will the 9600GT be sufficient or will I not see the 1080p to it's potential? I am in Panama and computer parts here are crazy expensive, the 9600GT is $134! I see on Newegg it is $85 after a $20 rebate! a 9800GT cost $165, HD4850 is $190 here also. I want to spend as little as possible but I want to make sure I am getting it right!

any comments would be greatly appreciated!

my specs:
ASRock alivenf6 mobo
Corsair 550W PSU
Thermaltake M9 case
1x2GB SuperTalent ram ddr2 667
Phenom X3 8650 2.3GHZ
and soon a Sun Beam Core Contact Freezer
I have picked all of these things up one by one over the many months which is why it may look like an odd setup haha

I'd say go for the HD4850 because it'll last you a while. Its more bang for your buck so to say.

I'm trying to go inexpensive, i was just kind of using the 4850 price as an example of the high prices here. I guess my main question is will the 9600 work for my 1080p? I don't plan to do much more with programs and games then what I am doing now. The 9800GT has DVI in the description as the others have DVI and/or HDMI..I am guessing a DVI-HDMI cable is all I will need for the 9600?

They have HDMI - DVI dongles sometimes. Im not sure if the one your looking at has them supplied with it but you can usually get it.
