Hi,
I have a very tight budget and I am gonna buy a 9600GT card. What is the capacity I should choose. 1GB or 512MB?? optimum resolution for my monitor is 1300X768. So I am going to play games in that resolution. Please think about the future games also. :pt1cable: 
System Specifications

Mb DG41RQ
CPU 2.66 Quad core Q8400
RAM 3GB

Thank you

If you're buying it for $90, go ahead and get an HD5670.

If you can, save another $40 and buy an HD5770. The performance increase will play everything on your res at max for the next few years.

But the 1GB version is useless.

I can get a slightly used 9600GT for 52$. it's bit difficult to go for a higher card.
Thank you

The 1gb will only become useful when youre playing at high resolutions with AA enabled...
