Your 9600 256 meg overclocks are good, about as high as your going to go with a non-pro...I have the identical card.
It works fine for me with all the new games, would love to upgrade, just dont have the cash at the moment.
If you get a relatively inexpensive board with 8x capabilities, you will like the card all that much more.
