Do you plan on running sound through your monitor? if not it doesnt matter if you use an HDMI cable or a DVI cable. A 9800GTX is significantly more powerful than a GT220, which was designed to be a low power OEM graphics card.

The 9800GTX definetly
You shouldn't have any problems. You should have an DVI-to-HDMI adapter in the box;)

Performance for gaming and just about everything will be a lot better with the 9800GTX

DVI and HDMI carry identical signal, the quality of the signal is identical unless you choose to buy a crappy quality cable and run it a very long distance. The only real benefit to HDMI is a smaller cable and connector, and the ability to carry sound through the same line.

The 9800GTX will be ok but for 1080p you are really best off with an HD5770/4870/GTX 260 level card.
