As the title says, i'm looking to upgrade my graphics card (nvidia Geforce 9500 gt) to 9800 gt. I'm not sure if my system can support that or not. What should I be looking at getting to make this work. I've heard about power suppliers and other things. I really have no experience in computers. The reason for upgrading is so I can play Fallout 3 on highest settings. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Please tell us about your power supply.
How many amps do you have on the 12v rails?
Look at the label.

well like I said, I'm not very knowledgeable about computers so I can't be certain what you're talking about. What i'm reading here is:
Frequency: 50/60 Hz
Current: 10a/5a
Voltage:115/230V
And at the top right of it, it says 12V.
If this information is of no use, then where can I find the amps or whatever you wanted to know?

I would really like some advice as to what I should do, if anything, to make the graphics card work.
