I'm not familiar with the 9300GE. If it's integrated, go into your BIOS setup and disable it. Then, install the 9800GT. Remember to connect your monitor to the new card.

If the 9300GE is an actual card wedged into a PCIe slot, it should be pretty obvious that you'll have to remove it before you can install the 9800GT. Unless your board has two PCIe x16 slots and you'd like to use the 9300GE to drive a third display, which is also possible.

"will i notice any difference in gaming performance?"
Yes.

You've already been told that the 9300GE sucks for gaming, plus I'm sure you already know that from your experiences with it. The 9800GTX is a MUCH higher end card but if your power supply doesn't put out enough amperage, you're going to have problems. I believe all this stuff was explained to you in the gaming forum.

"how do i check for the PSU specs?"

Open the case & get the specs off the label on the side of the PSU.

What the heck is wrong with you? Open the friggin case! How the hell do you ever expect to upgrade anything without opening the case?
