  1. The 9800gt would be the best of the three. The other two cards are not really made for gaming, they are mainly made for HTPC applications.

    If you can, I would wait until you can get at least a 6670. I have one and have it overclocked to near 6770 levels. It works well for me with my 19" wide screen Samsung monitor. I can play most games at high settings.

    no. the card is weak even at low resolution. you can look the review here:

    hi i have 400watt digicom power supply have been running it for 4 yrs which does not have six pin connector and has only 2 4pin molex connector free which i could join to one 6 pin connector. should i change my psu for 9800gt.

    i am currently running 1 seagate sata hard disk, 1 sony dvd writer, and intel pentim dual core 3.2gz processor. my motherboard is intel D984GCCR.
    thank you.
  4. Upgrade your psu and that will leave you with room to grow in the future. As for the 9800gt well I got two of them my self and they are not crap unlike the GT520. The GT520 from the compute numbers isn't much of an upgrade over an old 8600gt/gts.
