A GT240 with DDR5 would be slightly faster and use less power at the same time.

The 9600gt is only for fodder on the second hand market and unused stock. If it is priced $60 usd+ then pay little attention to it unless that is what gets your fancy.

The GT240 cannot be SLi'd and SLi'd 9600GT's aren't worth it IMHO.
