Upgrading from 9500gt to 9800gt

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.

  1. Please tell us about your power supply.
    How many amps do you have on the 12v rails?
    Look at the label.
  2. 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?
  3. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  4. Please, any answers?
  5. I would really like some advice as to what I should do, if anything, to make the graphics card work.
  6. Still haven't had any help . . .
  7. can we get the brand of the power supply and the wattage?

    oh and please don't spam ever 30 mins... we don't sit on this forum alll day
