I don't think the 9800gt will last long as some games have minimum requirements of 8800gt, so what would be a good upgrade??, I have a q8200 @2.33ghz and a 9800gt with a 750w psu

a gtx 560ti or 550ti would be a good option.

amd 6850 or 6870 is also good.

I'd get an HD6850/GTX 460 or higher and overclocking that CPU would help a lot.

is it a 1gb 9800? if it is , id just get another 9800gt for sli if your motherboard supports it. unless you want dx11, then look at getting a 560ti or 6870 or better for a worth while upgrade.

Even the HD6850/GTX 460 are over twice as fast as the 9800GT. Not sure why you would say an HD6870 or GTX 560 Ti are required for a worthwhile upgrade. Even something like an HD5770 would be a worthwhile upgrade really.
