Default Ordering new graphics card soon!

I'm about to order this card:

http://www.cancomputer.com/index.php?sku=4674

It is just to play medium requirement games (Steam games)

It is just to hold me until DX10 and the NVidia 8 series comes out.

What is the minimum wattage for a PSU for this card (I read somewhere it was 250W - I have a 300W PSU)

Is it an okay card for those types of games?

This will be replacing my integrated P.O.S.

Well?

And for those who want to know, it will cost about 74.17 American.

I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Why does it matter? Will shipping cost too much? I'll find the same card on NCIX.com

My budget is under $90.

Well that video card you have its 64-bit with 4 Pixel Pipelines and that wont do much.. Its the same has this card. If you cant really go over that much than get the 7300GS. Still not that fast

I could go over that price, but I'd probably need a new PSU which is more money... that I don't have.

So what is the best card I can get for $90 CAD?

300W? well that should do for a 6600GT PCIE, 6600 PCIE, but go around the 6600's, if not than the 6200. becuase those 7300GS cards you shows me, are 64-bit. That wont get you any where with gaming.. Alest with a 6600GT its 128-bit and a 6600. 6200 can have 64-bit.

nah, it just means that your system wont have alot to overclock with



Here let me explain what a diffrent between a 64 and 128 bit video card:



64-bit:
If you get a 64-bit video card, Try it get a powerfull 64-bit gaming card so its still powerfull in games, Like Example: 7600GS 64-bit compard to 7300GB 64-bit.

128-bit , 256-bit:
If your a gamer, you want this. The more bit the memory is the better frames in your games
