oh yes.

I mean, you MIGHT be able to get by, but I doubt it highly.

What PSU model are we talking?

They recommend at least a 400W power supply for the 9800GT.

^ You mean yes right? I'm thinking you're confused by the wording.

He will not be able to run a 9800 GT with that thing.

Well I have a gateway SX2800-01 and it's hard to find a psu that will match the back of it. Where can i get a more powerful psu that will fit in the back of the computer?
