    The Delta Electronics Inc. DPS-300AB 15B has a maximum power output of 300 Watts. The specifications are here:

    The 9800 GT requires at least a 400 Watt power supply. It is highly unlikely the 9800 GT will work with your existing power supply.

    With a 300 Watt power supply, a good graphics card in the NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT. It gets great reviews in all the trade magazines and websites I review, especially in bang for your buck. Here is a quick video review of the card:

    If you REALLY want a 9800 GT, you would need to upgrade your power supply. That can be a little tricky to do - at least trickier than swapping a graphics card - but can be done.

    There are even companies that sell direct replacements for the DPS-300AB 15B. Here is one such company:

    I've never used the retailer, so do so at your own discretion. FSP Group Inc (the maker of the power supply) isn't a horrible name in power supplies, but they aren't the greatest either. It should be fine.

    I hope this helps. If you need more information, please add more details to this question, or feel free to email me through my Yahoo! Answers profile.

    Good luck
