A agree, but they are pretty cheap upgrade now-a-days as well.... (a black edition 5000+ is $99 and becomes a 6000 -6400 +)

Also note that the 512MB 3850 performs close to you 320MB GTS

I honestly don't see a problem with it, however, I have a bit of concerns about that 600W PSU. I don't know if it can pull out enought juice with that 9600GT. Although, I'm sure it can.

Well, yeah, but IMO, he's up for a new system, because his CPU will eventually bottleneck everything.

It definitely will be able to. That platform would pull at absolute max 350W.
