Default no 12v?

well it sems this card only needs power from the slot so...http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150185
does that mean the power consumption will be a lot less than cards that do have a 6 pin?

I did a little research on that card and most sites stated that a 400W PSU is recommended for that card.

But the box recommends 350W PSU

Yeah, only really high end cards need an external power cord. The 7600GT gets all the power it needs from the PCIe slot.

And I'm pretty sure you're right, a 400 watt PSU is the minimum. I go for a good quality 450 at least though.

Are you sure the 7600GT will even fit in your micro ATX case? 350 watts is the minimum, if you have that you should be alright.
