Yes as long as you have a pcie16x slot on your mobo and a powerful enough PSU

Jhollis what kind of computer do you have? If you didn't build it yourself then you'll most likely need to buy a new power supply.

You can download CPU-Z and run it, click the Main board tab and tell us the manufacturer and model number.

For the power supply, open your computer up and look at it, it should have a sticker that is similar to this on one side.

Tell us what the "total power" or "total output" is as well as manufacturer and/or model number.

And even if you did build it yourself, if you made a poor choice, you may still need a new PSU.

Based on the motherboard, i'm guessing your running an Inspiron 545. Dell's website states the installed PSU is a 300Watt. I think if you are able to bump that up to a 600+. You should be able to run that 9800GT. Also, check with your motherboard too about disabling the on-board video GMA (Piece of Crap) adapter. Some require a BIOS setting, jumper or just the existance of a video board in the PCI 16x slot will do it...

Good Luck

if u mean bump the PSU up to a 600watt then im sure thats wrong. he will only need like a 500watt.(correct me if im wrong). i have a XFX 4890(uses way more power than a 9800) and a 520watt PSU and it runs fine. :whistle:

Dell's PSUs are high quality and rated lower than they should be.
I'm sure it can handle one of the newer low power 9800GTs without a power connector.

Very sure. It should also handle a few more powerful card like the HD4770 or HD5750.
As for the 9800GT it should let your run any game fairly well at 1280x1024 and below.
