How much does it cost?
I recommend a 6600GT video card. It should costly almost the same, and you get a lot more performance.

The two bad things are these:

a) You must have a good, quality 300-350 power supply, from a good, well-known manufacturer, with at least 20 A on the 12V rail, in order to have a stable computer.

b) The performance of a 9800 PRO or a 6600GT will be limited by your current CPU (is it a Celeron D or a Celeron?).

Good luck!

For that celeron, I recommend a 6600 or 6600GT. They will be bottlenecked by the CPU a lot.
I you wanna go cheaper, a Radeon 9600XT would be the best choice, given your actual CPU.

Good luck!

The 9800 is a powerful graphic card (I'm a fan of Ati). It is the most powerful graphic card you can get without buying into the xpress cards. You should get decent use out of this.
