I think you'd be ok with the GTX260 but I wouldn't try with the 9800GX2.

 

Here is a solution which should allow you to use a 9800GX2.  This power supply fits and works perfectly in the XPS 420 (even though it is designed for the Dell Precision T3400).

The GTX 260 will definitely work with the 425W PSU.  Today I replaced my 9800GT with an EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked Edition.  It works perfectly.
