Kevin, you dont have that processor!
Or harddrive.

Your current processor (sempron 1.5ghz) is going to bottle neck that video card (6600)

Yeah, I agree. I'd say stick with your card and put that money to something else, say, perhaps a new system?

Oh, oops, just noticed that you have one of those "SE" versions... It probably doesn't require an external power source, then, I have a 9600 Pro (or maybe a 9700, I'm not sure really) laying around that does require a floppy power cable.
