i have xp.

fair enough ill stick with 2 gigs.

i'm not quite sure, im at school right now so i cant tell until later.
so it would be better to add a few more bucks for that 9600gt, would it last when new games come out or just be outdated?
yeah my psu is needed of a upgrade, its not one of those branded name ones.

yeah i'm probably looking for a monitor in around the 19 or 20 inch.

I notice you didn't put down a monitor. Let me suggest you this one:

Newegg.com - Acer X193W+BD Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 (ACM) - LCD Monitors

Only $159.99 and you're getting a very good monitor for the price. I ordered mine from Newegg late Monday night and guess what? I got it delivered in person Wednesday morning about an hour ago. Pretty fast service.

It depends what kind of 350watt psu.

That system pulls less than 150 watts from the wall. You could get a 9600GSO
and run it just fine.

heres a bigger pic.


anyways, that monitor would be nice but they dont do international orders.(i live in canada for those who haven't noticed.)
but yeah i was leaning towards a bfg 9600gt superclocked or a evga 9600 gt superclocked, so i would definitely need to upgrade my psu as well.

You will need another PSU. The requirements for the 9600GT are 400w and 26A on the 12 volt rails. You have 350w, and 23a which isnt enough. Not to mention if its an overclocked card...
