Hi I'm new to this forum and I am thinking about buying a 9600GT or a 8800GTS 320mb.
The thing I am wondering is that the 9600GT is PCI-E 2.0 and my motherboard is kind of old (Emachines T6212) and when I bought it said it was just PCI-E. Will I even be able to use a 9600GT with my computer?

Yes you can, although your PSU may (or may not) be of greater concern.
ok thats good that I can use it. Is my system going to be taking advantage of PCIE 2.0 or is it going to run like PCIE 1.0? also which card is better: 9600GT or 8800GTS 320mb OC?
says you have an x16 slot, but hopefully you have a bit more ram than it came with stock. Any card should work fine if you have the power for it.
k thanks guys! yea i've upgraded to 1.5GB of RAM. I'm gunna try and grab an overclocked 8800GTS 320mb off of newegg for $119.99 after rebate. if i cant get that ill just run to best buy and buy an 8800GT 512mb for $219.99
