the NVIDIA GeForce 6100 graphics card in that system is integrated, i couldn't get enough full specs on the system in question to see whether it has an AGP slot or PCIE slot i'm going to assume that your 9600 is an AGP card...so as long as the new system has an AGP slot you will be able to use the 9600 with the new machine..you will just have to disable the onboard card in the new system once you install the 9600

Ideally though you want to have a PCI-E system as an AGP would be very diffcult to upgrade the gfx card. The best you can get now is the GS series but those are stop gap measures while trying to flog surplus chips. It is unlikely they will continue to produce AGP cards of even the slower GS versions when they move to DX10 architectures, its something worth bearing in mind.

Hmm, its personally, but I have had bad and good experiences with Gateway, mostly bad... Not fond of Dell either...

Though I do like HP now. For the money as I looked and compare, HP is usually the cheapest for the parts it has in it. Also, a lot of their mobos now support PCI-e 16 too.
