Question Video Card Questions

Well, I've been looking for a good video card, specifically a 6600gt with roughly 500 core clock and 1000 memory, AGP 4X/8X, and under $150 preferably, here's what I've come up with:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814108148
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814135186
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814139171

Will my lil' 350W power supply be able to handle these? Are there better ones out there for my wants and needs? Which one of these is the best?

Ty in advance, Marshillboy

My vid cards are about the same as them, my 350 can handle them...im hoping to upgrade soon though. You could just buy a new PSU as well though...

yes they ask for 350w so it should handle them. you do realize you take any 6600gt and download coolbits..click manual overclocking then grab the tab and choose 3d performance instead of 2d and its at 500/1000 right?

and yes, a 350W psu should be enough.

Don't get the XFX 6600 GT. It's very buggy. I repeat, DO NOT GET IT!
