honestly, it might work with your PSU, but i would replace the PSU with a corsair 400w, very good brand

just make sure you have a pci express slot (with that chipset, you should)

Well if you really want to be safe, you could get a low-profile 9600gt. It's very slightly weaker than the normal 9600gt, but much smaller and draws quite a bit less power. However, I still think that a standard 9600gt should be fine.
