The 9600GT will be a bit more faster than the A6-3650's GPU.

Hi, advice is, the APU you've picked is weak compared to the GPU in your old computer.

So, I'd recommend to rather get an G620 or i3 CPU with a decent dedicated card like 550 Ti.

Also, case + PSU packages are typically not recommended as the PSU ends up being on the garbage quality side. Pick a case with no PSU and pick a separate PSU from Antec, Seasonic or Corsair.

If you need any more help picking out parts let us know

actually, seeing how you're picking up your PC today, then alright, knock yourself out with that purchase, but take the card from your old computer and plop it into the new one.

in the future, refer to this for comparrison:
