is there any way to tell if i could buy a 9800GT/4850 & just install it without having much problem?

also, how can i find out the power output of the PSU?
gonna need something above the 500w mark.

thanks 'andythebrave'

looks good.

only problem is that the PC isnt for me & the budget is £550 max - i'll definitely keep it as a top option.

thanks again.
just checked ALDI, they dont have any at the moment but new deals every week, worth keeping an eye out, they have some amazing deals on pc base units, price usually falls in on your budget.
Specs as requested.
