Default Video Card - Just checking

http://www.diamondmm.com/V9600XT256.php

OK, that will be the card I would get.

But I need to make sure that my comp can run it.
It doesn't say on the website what amount of power it needs but I have a 300 watt power supply so maybe that'll be enough?

Also, this is the mobo that I have...

D845EBT

the link

http://support.intel.com/support/mot...sktop/d845ebt/

with 1 gig of memory.

So I just want to pass it by you guys before I order. I think they're both AGP and compatible with each other: 4x/8x.

Thanks!

Yes 300W should be enough to run it. U can google and find out the minimum amount of wattage it needs, but I'm guessing that it's about 300. But as they said u are paying alot for an old card, u could get a 6600GT with the same amount of money.

Oh yes I should have mentioned I'm looking for an AGp card that doesn't need an extra power connector.

My PSU is old and doesnt have an extra one for the graphics card.
