I had the 9600 Pro and it was a great card, albeit it had all of its features enabled and the 9600SE is a crippled card.
You can get a 9600 Pro used on eBay for like $35-$40 (I know, I sold mine for $35 a couple weeks ago).
My 9600 Pro played Half-Life 2, WoW, Doom 3 decently.
Obviously they couldnt run at like 1024x768 at high res, but Doom 3 ran very well at 800x600 at medium, WoW ran well at 1280x1024 with some of the graphics intensive stuff turned down.

What interface are you looking at? AGP right?

If so I'd look at the 6600GT.

I would guess, yes. The 9600se (**** edition) is a card for families to use for mild gaming and stuff like that.
