For under $120, with a 550w PSU, you can do a lot better than those two cards. The Tom's Hierarchy chart places the 8800GT above the 9600GT.

In case you are open to ATI products, a 5670 would be a similar level of performance, but would be brand new and use far less electricity:

Well the GTS 250 is the best Nvidia card for under $120 in the US. Tell us your actual budget if you want us to recommend the best card you can get.
If the choice is really between the 8800GT and the 9600GT then the 8800GT is a better card.

i think gtx 250 requires 2 slot & i think i have only one slot.
my mobo dg31pr,so please check can i use this card..................

and is there is any advantage in 9600gt over a 8800gt (8800gt has more texture fill rate and processor cores than 9600gt).

2 slotted card means the cooler is double slotted
its big thats it..
it fits into 1 slot only..
8800gt performs better than 9600 gts 250 performs even better than 8800gt
