My Monitor resolution is 1024 x 768..........

So can I go with

9600 Gt 1 gb
9800 Gt 512 mb

I know the resolution is fine..........but what about the shader quality, Shadow quality?

i have a core 2 duo @ 2.20 ghz
1 gb ram......

The 9800GT 512MB will be better at your resolution and you can turn on more details. You will not gain from the extra ram on the 9600GT 1GB.

Yes, the 9800GT is better, the extra memory makes no difference.
What would make a difference is adding another gig of system ram. 2gb is about the minimum you want to have for running current games. OCing the CPU would be a good idea as well.

For that specific game the cards will do well at your resolution, not max settings, but fairly high. The problem will be your CPU as GTA4 is very processor intensive. Like I said earlier overclocking the processor is a good idea. If your motherboard allows for such it should OC easily and well, probably up to 3 ghz just on the stock cooler.

At your resolution it should be fine for a while. One thing to consider is that it isn't DX11. The HD5670 is and it is similar in performance and price(in the US) so you may want to consider that card instead.
If you want a card that will be great for your resolution and last you a long while you may want to pay slightly more for an HD5750/HD4850/GTS 250.

The HD5670 is also very low power so you may not need to replace your PSU for that one. Also there are two versions of the 9800GT. The older one uses a fair amount of power and requires a PCIe power connector while the newer version is slightly underclocked but uses much less power and doesn't need a connector.
What is your current PSU?

If the 9800GT is one of the newer versions without the power connector than even a crappy 450w should be able to handle it. The HD5670 as well.
As for lagging it depends on the game and the settings you are trying to use. At your resolution the 9800GT should let you use high settings in most games but some will become choppy if you try to max AA and such. Also your processor is a bit weak like I said earlier which will be a problem in the more CPU intensive games.

Don't worry 9800GT 512MB is better than 9600Gt in EVERY aspect(performance related).

Though you need to change your PSU.

You'll need to game on XP otherwise your RAM won't suffice.

Let me guess, your monitor is VGA, and the video card is using DVI. Easy solution for that is a dvi to vga adapter, end of problem. Any one telling you a monitor won't be compatible with a new video card because it only connects through VGA shouldn't be working with computers.

Usually graphic cards come with a DVI-to-VGA dongle, though I would try to find out before purchasing one. Otherwise, they are pretty cheap to get elsewhere.

It will depend on the company, as my gf's XFX 9800GT, came with one. Same for my Sapphire 4890 Toxic, it came with a DVI to VGA adapter and a DVI to HDMI adapter. Some companies don't include them at all. If it helps you any, you can check out Newegg to see if a brand/model includes an adapter (usually the last picture).

If possible, do you know what brand and model of the 9800GT you will be buying? If you're going to buy it in a computer/electronics store, maybe you can ask the employees if it's included or even ask them to open a box to check for you.

Edit: Here are examples:

With adapter

Without adapter

Get the standard 9800GT.
It can be overclocked to match the XXX version in about 15 seconds.
And yes, the 9800GT is better in all cases than a 9600GT.

IF your new GPU does not come with a DVI => VGA adaptor, you can pick one up for next to nothing.

Omg, you actually still have a 1024x768 monitor laying around?
Then you could probably play games with decent quality with a 9800GT
and oh yea, at your resolution 1gb ram will have next to nothing in effect
Go for the 9800GT for more raw power
Personally I would buy a 9800GTX+, but not sure if u can find any of those anymore
As I remember it stands a tat faster than a HD4850

The 'new' version is simply an underclocked 9800GT that draws less than 75W max load.
It runs a bit slower (but still faster than a 9600GT) but requires no PCIe 6 pin power connector.

Yes it can and probably with AA to boot.

Not really.
The 9800GT still outperforms the 5670 and both cost about the same.
It really is personal preference between the two.

No, ATI's GPUs are just as good (or better) than their current nVidia counterparts.
The 5670 will be a bit slower than a 9800GT (still faster than a 9600GT) but draws quite a bit less power.
As you can get either for the same $90, it comes down to lower power vs higher performance.
newzealend said:

ATI's stream processors are different than nVidia's.
One of the differences is that they run at the same speed as the graphics core.

By 'Hd radeon 1 gb' I assume you are talking about the 5670?

The 5670 performs better than the 9600GT.
Both are still outperformed by the 9800GT (which draws more power than either).

At your resolution, 512MB of video RAM is more than enough.

There are some custom low power 9800GT cards that do not require a 6 pin PCIe connector.
This is not a 'new version', just a custom variation offered by some manufacturers.
It is neither marketed or validated by nVidia, being only offered by some of their partners as a custom card.
You will need to look your self if your supplier offers any of these cards.
