    I now have an nvidia 5200 and would like to change to the AGP Radion 9800 pro all in one. Should I have any problems with this change?

    As long as you have an AGP slot, nope.

    How many watts is your power supply? It should say on the power supply itself. Ideally, you want a 300w or higher one, though there are some lower powered ones that have high enough +3.3v and +5v rails to support it.

    When I take out the current card I will then have the AGP slot free. My power supply is above 300w so looking good to go. Thanks, fellas.

    In case you're not already aware, remove *ALL* traces of your old video card drivers BEFORE installing the new card and drivers, otherwise you'll have endless headaches.
