The 9800 GT model doesn't support DirectX 11, so you can't use GMS 2. Not being a hardware expert, I would recommend trying out the Trial version, though, but it's very unlikely to run, given how old your graphics card model is.

Thanks a lot :)

In fact, you do, and it makes sense, since Every 5 year old graphic card does have DX11 support, including the Intel HD4000 series, which are usually included in budget laptops.

I recommend you to get a new graphics card, a GTX 1050 is a good choice, you can find it for less than $110, and it will suit all your needs for any kind of Game Making, 2D or 3D, as long as your CPU can handle the softwares and the games themselves. Also, it's TDP is really low (Even Lower than the GT 9800, about 40%), and it doesn't even needs a 6-pin connector, so you don't have to worry about buying a Power Supply.

Thank you, for now it was just for information, I found the interface of GMS2 really beautiful and I feel it is more accessible for those who do not know too much in video games developing compared to GMS1 :) thanks again for your answers
