Do as citadel suggests click here. But first make sure it'll fit in your case (both length & breadthwise) & you have a PSU that's sufficiently powerful that has a dedicated 6pin PCI-E connector.

The 9600GT card you linked to isn't bad, but at £108 represents poor value for money.

Why are you upgrading your graphics btw? And why do you think you need something powerful or for £100? G

i play alot of graphical games but everytime i load one it lags a lot and want a decent computer that will last me for a few years. My psu is 500 watts. i also dont have a good graphics card since the one i am using is about 5 years old.

would the ATI graphics card be compatible with a nvidia based chipset?

also how much would you advise to spend on a good graphics card for serious gamers?

If you want an idea of which card to buy have a look here

click here

It all depends on various factors, size of monitor, whether you want to play at high settings, the cpu you have chosen only runs at 2.4GHz and for some games that could slow things down slightly.

But have a look at that link, it's only my opinion but that 9600GT isn't one I'd pick, I've just replaced an 8800GTS 512MB for a GTX 260 card and the results are amazing and that 8800GTS was good.
