Question Looking to Upgrade

I am getting a HP Pavilion p6210f Desktop Computer With AMD Athlon™ II 620 Quad-Core Processor for x-mas, and I am looking to get video card and psu upgrades before x-mas so I can play Aion Christmas morning..

Right now I am looking at this combo Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

But I am unsure whether all the parts are compatible/ will fit inside of the PC.. Can you help me?

Both should fit, but you can do better for your money.

Newegg.com - XFX HD-477A-YDFC Radeon HD 4770 512MB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
$115 w/free shipping

Newegg.com - BFG Tech GS-550 550W ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V V2.8 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply - Power Supplies

No rebates involved, but the 4770 is a better card performance-wise than the 9800 GT.


Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43

I see that the 4850 is the same price as the 4770, however its not currently in stock at newegg, buy maybe you'll find it in stock elsewhere? If not, then the 4770 is good, and the PSU trotter mentioned is good as well.
