Default Should I get this or hold out?

I found a good deal at NCIX.

NCIX Value Bundle Deal Intel E2200 Dual Core & Gigabyte EP43-DS3L Motherboard -UNASSEMBLED - $189.99

I'm sure I could OC that E2200 to 3.3-3.6GHz with a good HSF. I know the mobo like that back of my hand. The other question I need to ask. Will my 9600GT handle playing Far Cry 2 at high settings at 1680x1050?

Hold out. That's one lower-end CPU, and you will be asking a lot of your 9600GT.

What if I swap the E2200 for the E5200?
