RAM = Bottom Left
Slots = Top Right

I don't *think* you will have clearance issues with the RAM clips, but it will be close. I recon provided the PCI expansion slots aren't half height (which I can't tell from the pic) a 9800GT/8800GT/9600GT should fit.
Also do you know what wattage PSU the computer comes with (should be on a sticker on the side)

I only see something that says 230 V HI-POT OK (near the main power wire)
and another sticker on the back saying,
AC INPUT 100-127-6.0A
50/60Hz 200-240V-3.0A

Sorry, not to good at finding these things out :S

The sticker should be on the PSU on the inside of the case.

Ok so, on the sticker inside the case it says: DC Output: 300W

Combined power on +5V and 3.3V rails not exceed 175W max
Combined power on +12V and +5V rails not exceed 268W max
Continuous total dc output power shall not exceed 300W.

Got a picture here that might be a bit clearer....

Hrm. That would be cutting it very fine to run an 8800GT (or equivalent) on that PSU . Really you should have a >400w PSU with at least 22 amps on the 12v rail.
You have two options, buy a new PSU, or buy a low power-consuming card like the HD4670 -

That card consumes very little power, it won't perform quite as well as an 8800GT but it should be quite a decent upgrade from what you have.

no, on the xfx web site it says for a 9600gt you should have a minimum power supply of 400 watts
