    650W will be fine for that. The 9600GT is not a huge power sink.

    Hi Funtastic, welcome to PF1.

    To be honest you could have probably got away with much less, even 500w, but having the 650w will just give you "room to grow"

    Thanks
    The fact that the card doesnt use a pci-e power connector states that it doesnt use more than 150w.....The phemon is 120-140w max, so you are a shoe in with anything above 400w

    Powers fine, not sure why you would want to buy a 9600GT now, hopefully you got it very cheap.
