Hold off on the graphics as you can get a computer running without it and will more then likely be able to afford another Card soon enough...
My 2 cents

i think you dont need 1 gig of mem (for now), and hard drives aren't the biggest performance makers/crushers. i say go for the 9600xt

Your computer is good enough as it is except for GRAPHICS + with the XT, you'll get free HL2 download whenever it comes out.
