9600GT upgrade to GTX 275

Hi, hopefully someone can direct me in the right direction.

I am thinking of upgrading my store bought pc, it currently has a 9600gt graphics card in it, and I would like to upgrade it to a GTX 275, so I have 2 questions.

Is this card considrably better than my current one?
Also,
What information do I need to make sure everything is compatable in my pc, as to not fry something?

any help is greatly appreciated? Ty.

That's a polite way of putting it,

Well if everything here is correct,

a new power supply and case. A 400W power supply is pushing it at best for the 275, and there is no way it will fit in the stock ATX case.

Mmm, it could well fit as I have a ATX case and I've managed to fit a 9800gtx in and if the details on nvidia site are correct then a gtx275 is the same length as a 9800gtx.

Just get a tape measure out and measure the variables

275 details;
Height 4.376 in
Length 10.5 in
Dual slot.

It will also be considerably better as everything will be maxed out instead of medium/max.

The GTX 275 is a pretty big performance increase over the 9600GT. Its got almost double the power. Just as mentioned above make sure you have a good PSU so you don't under power the card.
