OEM Power Supplies are not known for being very high quality... :\
I doubt very seriously it has the power to power a 9800 GT.
What your friend should do is scoop up a 25-30$ PSU like a Cooler Master Elite 460w or HEC 585w before he goes and buys a 9800 GT, because even if his HP CAN run the 9800 GT, it'll only be a matter of weeks before the PSU kicks the bucket.

They're only $30

And they can probably run the 9800 GT.
The stock OEM PSU in that HP probably won't be able to run it, and if it can, it'll die pretty fast probably.
