Default New Graphics card

Okay so I currently have the 8600GTS(256Mb)Graphics card, all of my games are maxed out except crysis on a 1280x1024 resolution, How good is the 9600GT(512MB)?

And will my 540 watt power supply be enough for this?

It's a great price to performance card but it depends on whether you play with AA or not. With no AA the HD 3870, which is comparable in price will outperform the 9600, but the 9600 pegs it back when AA is enabled: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161218

Like worship me said, great price for what you get. What resolution do you play and what is your native resolution?
