Default 9600 Xt

I'm looking for a Good 9600 XT at Newegg, I'm thinking of purcashing this one:
radeon 9600XT
Here is what CPU-z says about my graphic interface:

Will a 9600XT be compatable with my graphic interface, would you reccomend a different brand of a 9600XT? I just want to be sure before I purchase another graphics card.

Looks good, although I would go for a different company, I am not an ATi person so I dont know the companies very well, someone else can point you in that direction.

The Radeon 9600 XT will work fine with that interface.

I would recommend looking into an ATi-built card, or even a Sapphire.

I believe a 300W power supply is enough to run 9600XT. I think nowadays most people have at least 300W. The 9600 doesn't take up as much power as the newer cards.

The Radeon 9600 XT receives its power through the AGP (45w max).

You really wont see a difference in a game between the 4x and 8x AGP. But in a benchmark you will see a difference.
