    It is although what you have is not what one would call a reliable PSU.

    I think it will be enough to power the gtx 560 card without any problems

    I made the same jump from 9800 gt to gtx560. Mine is not gtx560Ti though. I dont know if it requires much more power. You can look at my specs from the menu.
    Yours is Intel core 2 quad q8400 - mine is core 2 duo.
    your is gtx560ti - mine is gtx560.

    if your psu is not enough it will not power up.

    If your PSU can handle the 9800GT fine then it will handle the 560, the 9800GT peaks at around 190W where as the 560 2GB card only peaks at around 163W and the 1GB version at around 155W.
