But i don't know Nvidia or ATI better because i just like play games ( future ) and design photo and 3D big grin and i don't know which video card can work on my PC

My system information :

Motherboard : ASUS M5A97EVO

CPU : AMD FX 8120 ( 125w )

HDD : 500G , SDD : 128GB

Video Card : Nvidia Geforce 8600GT

From what I see this card can draw up to 220W when gaming, + 125W for your CPU leaves you 255W for everything else in your system. So you do have overhead. However, if you plan on adding another card for SLI, you'll need to upgrade that power supply to something in the 850W range.

A card with similar performance with an ATi/AMD chip (HD 5850, HD 6870) will cost you about the same.

ati(amd) video card often take less power to power than nvidia card.
But 600w is enough for that build leaving you enough space for overclocking,
but if you plan taking the 560 in sli you might need a 750w.

If you plan take only 1 card, you might want to go with a gtx 560 ti wich will allow you some great overclocking possibility. ( or buy a pre-oc 560 ti )

Yeah, it will work, but for me personally, I would get a PSU with more power... From past experience 600w ain't great, even on a single card of 8800GT and above, esp if you add more or run it out to a screen or screens over 19"...

Yes that Video card will work on your motherboard and with your power supply.

The choice between video card manufactures is a very debated subject, usually there is not a huge difference at given price points. A 200 dollar Nvidia card will offer very close performance to a 200 dollar Ati Card, or Vice Versa, etc. That being said Nvidia has PhysX, I don't know what Ati has. Seriously though, use http://www.motherboards.org or others, reviews to help your decision on Ati vs Nvidia.
