I am wanting to upgrade my video card, i have a GT120 now and want to go to a 9800GT. Is a straight swap, i mean i don't have to do anything else besides drivers??

i also have a 24" HD Lcd monitor 1920 x 1200 resolution. is a 9800GT the right way to go?

I have a 400 watt psu, so i know i can't get to much more gpu without upgrading that also.
Which i really don't want to do yet.

You should be fine, you might not even have to update drivers.

The 9800GT is the faster card, the GT240 is equivelent to a 9600GT.

Would it be better to get the 1gig model then the 512meg?

Someone will tell you no...the other 99.0% of us will tell you that for a 9800GT you won't notice the difference.

The perfomance change would be minimal, for the performance the 9800gt offers it really can't take advantage of that much memory, just save some money and get the 512 MB
