A 9600 should play it better than 640x480 with medium or low detail,I'm playing @ 800x600 with medium setting's on my 9550se and it play's smooth

i suggest nvidia geforce 6800 GT, 6600 GT or radeon X800 pro if u want to play it at that setting

but for me i always go with nVidia because it supports SM3.0 while ATI doesn't.

and one thing if u run the game with 800x600 with high detail it will look better than runing it on 1280x1024 with medium detail

6800GS when overclocked anihilates a 6800GT that is overclocked, and for $90 or so less.
