    yeah if you have a AGP slot you'll be able to swap that Geforce 2 out of there and install that radeon 9800pro just make sure to uninstall the nvidia drivers before you take out the geforce 2 ;)

    in essence, yes. ATi requires a 300watt powersupply, but i hear people running 9800 pros in small form factor boxes (sff) with 125-240 watts

    I have only 200 watts so what can i do to use the 9800 pro without upgrading my watt?

    I'm not trying to be an ass, but what you are referring to is called a power supply "without upgrading my watt." You will probably have to upgrade your power supply if you want your system to run stable. But you can probably run the 9800 if your power supply is not generic.

    GeForce2 GT's uses AGP 1.0, a 9800 Pro uses AGP 3.0 and 2.0 (I think 2.0)

    The voltages are different, so if your motherboard only supports AGP 1.0, you may not be able to upgrade.

    I believe you can run a 9800 Pro at 1.5V which is supported by AGP 2.0

    As far as I know, AGP 2.0 and 3.0 slots are the same shape.

    I'm just rambling on, my brain is shutting down. I'm going to go to bed now, I hope this helps... sorry I didn't proof read this, so sorry if there is bad grammar :D

    The GTS is AGP 2.0, It supports AGP 4x/1.5v and also AGP 2x/1x, the GTS only comes in AGP flavour so he has an AGP slot for sure.
