Currently have a PNY 8400GS with a Corsair 400w PSU. Would like to know if my current Corsair 400w PSU will be able to support an XFX 9800GT 512MB graphics card, along with the other hardware: Antec 900 ( running all 4 fans ) Core 2 Quad (Q9550) 2.83Ghz 4GB DDR2 Seagate 500GB HDD

The 400W will be able to handle it.

A 4670 would perform about the same and consume less power, or a 4770.

As a rule, I would want a bit more margin so as to stress the PSU less... but that's strictly a matter of opinion. The age of the 9800GT is important also, as newer ones will be more efficient.
