okay, first of all, how much do u want to spend?
GTS 250 is about the same performance with 9800GT but with newer technology on it.
XFX usually give u a long warranty on their products...

Go here and let it "do the math" for you. The card adds about a 70 watt load......I intsalled a GTS250 this morning on a 650 watt Antec ....

As for your selected brand, I can find no reviews of it in recognized PSU review sites....did find one blog review but all it said was that it was half the price of one of the "average" Antec lines which makes me suspicious.

gtx 250 is newer, and has pretty good clock speeds, though i really dont suggest factory overclocked cards cuz they would die on you fast .. ^^
