Good compatibility. 30A is more than enough to run the 9800GT

It will run fine.
LGA-775 mainboard w/ weird PCI x16 compatibility problems
HD 6950 compatibility
Graphics card compatibility

9800GT doesn't even use much power, just a 6-pin and about 20A.

9800GT is more powerful than the HD5670!

9800gt most dont need a 6 pin anymore!

9800gt/8800gt is way to go,hd 5670 offers dx11 but it doesnot have enough juice to make it.

Benchmarks depend on the game, big difference in Crysis
At the most common resolution the 9800GT is on average 9 to 15% faster

and thanks u guys for all the replies...really appreciate it

hey now you made me think over on which one to buy!!
please suggest HD5670 or 9800GT ??

Low power PSU energy efficient card will run on 300watt PSU with about 18-20 amps on the +12 volt rail HD5670.
For 15% more performance 9800GT needs a PSU with 24amps on the +12 volt rail.
