The 9800, as i said above, what are the specs of your new one? it may not even be worth it to upgrade depending on what you already have.

What graphic card is in it? if you still want to upgrade, get the 9800gt, it is fast and i think it has more speed in general. Have you looked into ati cards? I think they will have better bang for your buck.

means that the memory is faster. if that is the card you want but the thing, all you will get here are our opinions. What do you mean ati cards will not play what you want? ati and nvidia will play the same games, nvidia plays some better than ati and vice versa. I think both those cards are similar so in the end either one will give you the same boost you want.

neither of those card are going to run newer games on high settings, i would get the cheaper one because they will probably give you the same performance in new games, you might notice a small increase of performance with the zotac, but probably not much. in game the zotac would be a little better, but there is not much memory on there any ways. Also i think the speed on the 9800 is actually faster.

Why not just build your own and bypass Dell?
