Well I would say that a 9600Gt will do the job, because the 9600GT has like one the best price/performance ratio out there. And it kinda depends on what you like most nVidia or ATI.
But the performance for the 9600GT is awsome for it. I would look for a XFX OC edition one or get a Palit Sonic, cause there performance are great.

That xfx 8800gt I linked in your other thread was $130 after mir. The 8800gt outperforms the 9600gt, especially at higher resolutions, although the 9600gt can get 8800gt performance w/ oc at lower resolutions, and is a better choice if you plan on doing sli in the future.
