I'm shopping for an upgrade for my Dell Inspiron 545. The HD 4650 and 9800 gt (low power maybe?) seem like my best options. I think...

Specs are Intel Core 2 quad Q8300 @ 2.5
4gb ram
500 gb hdd

My worry is that that the standard PSU (300w - and I don't plan on upgrading it) would not handle the 9800 gt or anything better than the 4650.

Which one is better? Are there any other cards I should consider?

Any advice would be welcome.

And for extra points...can these run NWN2?

Thanks!

in terms of performance 9800 wins
still i think 9800 (low power edition) draw more power than 4650. your best bet will be 4650 / 4670
about your PSU i'm not really sure.minimum power required for 4650/4670 is 400w as stated in amd site.

about NWN2: yes these cards can run it.

hope this will help :)
