Cool. I hope you have alot of money? Geek Squad will charge you a fortune. Enjoy the new videocard. The 9800gtx is one sweet card.

ATI's 4780 is the best bang for you buck. It can be had online for around $150 and outperforms the 9800GTX across the board.
Another reason to shop online is the chance of avoiding shipping as well as state tax. I would suggest getting both the PSU and video card from an online vendor that offers both free shipping and no sales tax.
You can always take in your video card and PSU to Best Buy and have them install them or call around and ask how much to install a new power supply and video card if Geek Squad seems too expensive.

Ok so how much do you think it will cost for them to upgrade for me, and i only can get the gpu and psu from best buy...no online shopping atm
Does any video card and power supply fit in any desktops? Does 9800gtx fit in mines?
And where does my old gpu go when i upgrade to my new gpu.
