The 9500GT is not a gaming graphics card by any means.

To even begin to recommend a video card to you we'd need more information from you.

1) System Configuration (i.e. what kind of computer or components do you have now?)
2) What resolution is your monitor
3) What games do you intend to play?
4) What budget do you have for a video card?

maybe you should save up until you get $80-$100 so we can recommend something better otherwise you could get this

but as you can see, the memory bandwidth is low and hits the performance hard from an otherwise good card but it won't really matter for your res

Other options include 4650/70 which also be good for your res

Mind you that newegg offer only lasts for the weekend

Also a CPU/ram/mobo upgrade should be in your mind for the future

hope I helped :)

like i saod in your other thread, 4650/4670 or 9600GT/GT240. Any card higher than that would be a waste...
Those card are enough for your low resolution. :)

Run your games, but reduce the resolution and eye candy to a minimum. This will simulate what will happen if you upgrade to a stronger graphics card. If your FPS improves, it indicates that your cpu is capable of driving a stronger graphics card to higher levels of FPS.

if you really want to play latest game don't go for 9500GT. for your resolution something like 9600GT/HD4670 should be fine. before this i owned 9600GSO and with 1024x768 i'm still able to play crysis on high setting with average frame rates around 25-30FPS

Pentium dual core clocked at 1.6GHz? I know of no such chip. I also haven't heard of any SiS chipsets for modern CPUs. Along with the odd memory size (half gig) and the small harddrive I think he has some older computer, and probably still on AGP if he is lucky.

OP, trying running CPUz and tell us about your CPU and mobo. This will help us tell you what you should get.

Open up the case and look inside. Post a picture of the motherboard if you can.

What we are looking for is what type of graphics slot you may have available if any. We need to determine if it is AGP or pci-e.

Also look at the label on the power supply. In particular the amps on the 12v leads. It will be in the range of 18 to 30 or so. This is needed to determine if there is adequate power to run a discrete graphics card.

If the case looks small, measure how much room there is to install a card in the graphics slot. Some graphics cards are quite long.
