  1. well, you can use 9800GT on any motherboard, as long as the board has PCI-E slot on it...
    Only dual core, right? so, if you can, OC it a little bit to 3.0GHz or higher then you'll good.
    Also, add another 1GB of RAM, so the setup will be (1+1)GB = 2 sticks.

    If the dual core is at 2.0-2.4GHz, he may not be able to set it as high as 3.0GHz, even more so if it's a prebuilt.
    Can you tell us what psu you have? You need a psu with a 6pin cable, and a pci-e slot, also at least 350+watts.
  3. Yeh it should work fine without a faster processor and more ram you wont be able to make the most of the card
  4. well, my e6300 (1.8GHz stock speed) can go up to 2.7GHz without raising the VCore... :)
