will the 9800 even work on my system?
im trying to get my system ready for half-life 2

Some HP's don't have a power supply that is capable of carrying the 9800 series. They require a lot of power apart from what the board supply's with the AGP slot so an extra power connector to the vid card is needed. Chances are about 50/50.
