The RAM your board supports wont have an effect on the Graphics Card

The 9600GT had DDR3 on the actual card and wont make any difference to the Mobo

The higher the number the better the card eg 9500 is better than the 9400, the 9600 is better than the 9500 etc ect

The ram only effects the card if you have large resolutions, your monitor is 1400x900 so its not going to play a huge part

Don't forget to mention that the numbers only apply to that series and for example a 8800 is far better then a 9400 or even a 9600 and would only be beaten by a 9800 which has now been renamed to the GTX250, I think if you really want the best bang for your buck you should look around for a decent 8800GT.

But your going to stuggle to find a 8800GT for less than a 9600, this guy is on a budget remember.

Go with ATi. If you're going to pay, like, $100 for those cards, you might as well buy an HD 3870 or an HD 4670.
