Power supply in all likelihood would not be able to handle it.

Two things I would worry about is the PS will be lacking and will the 9800 GX2 actually fit in the case, The front of the case comes off and under that is a tray that comes out the front that holds the HD and a bay for a portable storage, and that takes up a lot of space in the case, Not to mention it can only hold one hard drive so adding a second isn't a option. Can you tell I really hate to work on HP systems There design really isn't for any upgrading what so ever, They would rather you run to the store and just buy a whole new system from them.
