Hey everyone. I bought a computer with the following motherboard : NVIDIA MCP78V Chipset. The thing is that this motherboard has the integrated GeForce 9100 but I want to get a 9800 gt. Will the 9800 fit into this? or am I going to be able to install it and run it cool?
I appreciate all answers :)

You should have a PCIe slot on that board so as long as your PSU handle it you should be good to go.

Just put the card in the available PCI-e graphics slot, connect the 6-pin power connector (if applicable), then connect your display to it and you're good to go. No need to worry about the integrated graphics as you won't be using it anyway. Just like mousemonkey said, it would be possible as long as your PSU can handle the card.
