Yes the 2600PRO is fine. I have one that worked fine on a 300watt for a long time overclocked playing CoD4. I eventually got a 480watt PSU because it was cheap at the store nearby.
I got mine overclocked to 650 core, 475 memory and it plays CoD4 at 1280x1024 (no AA/AF, I hate it) at 45-60fps average.

Yeah, multiply mine by 2 to get the real one, I guess its because there are 2 RAMDAC's or something...

ok, but would the 256 mb and the 512 mb really make that much of a difference? and is the pci-e and the agp versions the same?

I'm not sure about the PCI-E/AGP question but I think memory makes a slight difference.

The PCIe would have a slight performance edge on the AGP version as it has a higher bandwidth through the PCIe slot. Having more memory will give it better performance in higher resolutions.
