someone told me a 500w or a psu under 700w wouldnt be enough to fully utilize the 9800 gtx
 
A quality 450W - 550W is plenty for a 9800 GTX. Getting a quality PSU is FAR more important than the wattage rating. Cheap PSU's always over-rate their wattage rating.

Any of the above would easily power a 9800 GTX.
