If you find a board that has a PCI-E Slot, it works with a 9800GTX.. even if its not a 2.0 slot..

So show me the board.. because I'm not psychic D:

Yes, but you need either an x16 or 2.0 to run a 9800GTX (aka the long one)

Its Meh at best, Intel Duals or Quads, some AMD's Tri-Cores or DualCores are better than that tbh..

I don't recommend it..

I would buy a Wolfdale on Intel's side or a Phenom x3 or a BE 7750 from AMD (intel's is faster)
