    whats your PSU?? i would go for the 4830 as its newer model while the 9800GT is an re-named of the 8800GT,in some cases the 4830 has performed abit better than 9800GT but in other case 9800GT has been better card but i would go for 4830,but if you can try paying a little bit more buy a 4850 as its a better card than both if you have a good PSU.

    More importantly is what brand of PSU is it. That rated wattage means nothing without knowing if it is a quality PSU. If your answer is "It's a generic piece of crap", then take a step back and buy yourself a new PSU before you even think about a new card. If your PSU is decent, then a 4830 would be perfect for the power you have to work with.

    A 4770 will be even better considering power consumption.
