Buying these parts for my computer and I cant decide which graphic card i should use. Would GeForce 9600 GT do the job?

I have 19" screen 1400x900 i think it is.

IMO You'd be better off buying a ATi 5770/5750 as they have DX11 support.

Or if your planning on upgrading that monitor in the future, then grab a 5850/5870.

Or wait on Nvidia to release their G300 Series cards, theres no point in investing in old generation video cards.

Hope that helps.

Maybe get a 9800gt instead? My budget is kind of limited!

your motherboard is quite fine, Robinffs.

If your budget is around $100, I advise you to get an HD4850. It offers solid performance, at quite a decent price. However, if you can kick yourself up to $125, newegg has HD4870's for that price, which is quite a great deal.
