  1. likely but i cant gaurantee it
  2. I'd would check the amperage required, as the 8800GTX are a bit power hungry
  3. what about the 9800gt do they take one pci e plug or 2? and how many pins?

    The 8800 GT and 9800 GT are the same exact cards and require only one PCIE power connecter and a decent PSU with at least 26 amps on the 12v rail.

    However the 8800 GTX is more powerful and requires two PCIE power connecters and a slightly beefier psu.
  5. is a 550w psu enough to power a 9800gt

    It depends on the amperage and brand. What model is your PSU?
  7. dont know the make but i know the specs.
    550w psu
    +5v=35A
    +12=24A
    -12v=0.5A
    +3.3v=22A
    +5vSB=2A
  8. i think i got a bit of a bargain. a 1GB 9800GT Boxed for £21. with free postage!!
    what connector does it take though? is it the 6pin D shape pci e connector or the square shape 6 pin pci e connector?

    http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/pcie6plus2.jpg 8 pin with break away for 6 pin cards.
  10. is the 9800gt a 8 pin?
  11. also does the psu have enough power to run the card ok?
  12. The 9800 GT is 6 pin and your PSU should be able to run it if it's a quality brand.
  13. thanks for that bud! is it an ok card?? also is £19 a good price?

    19 pounds is great! It is an older card however it isn't bad.
  15. so i can run older games on it no problem then? say round games released round 06 07. also how does it fair up to newer games??

    A lot of older games (up to 2009) have the 9800 GT as the recommended card and newer more graphically strenuous games state it as the minimum.
  17. fantastic!!!! very happy with the card now! got a great deal!!! also they any good for overclocking
  18. also should run on windows 7 ultimate x86? also my board should be ok too shoudnt it.
    its a ECS G31T-M7 V7.0
  19. and my cpu is a intel pentium dual core e2200 overclocked to 2.75GHZ
  20. That 9800 GT is a pretty good match for your system however I wouldn't try overclocking with that card unless you get a better PSU.
  21. thanks for all the info you have been a massive help!!!
