Ohh well yea def. the 7600gt will handle those games fine. Idk about the settings turned all the way up but mid way should be fine, u will notice a huge difference from using your onboard chipset. But when you put this card in dont forget to tell the bios that u are using a pci-express card instead of you onboard. also in Windows Xp(if u are running it) go to device manager and under display adapters there will be 2 disable your onboard one. Also in safe mode uninstsall the drivers for ur onboard and you will be good to go my man.

What card do you curently have? You may want to wait til the lower profile DX10 cards come out. You may be able to get one of the 8300GTs or something. DX10 is supposed to use less power for more graphics because of the way it uses the power so the 8300GT should be pretty good when it comes out, compared to the current 7600GT it may be even. IDK. Or do what I did, I bought an asus 7900gs off ebay for $150. Came quick and its good.
