New PSU?

I currently have a 250W psu in my Dell Dimension 8250, here are the specs:

p4 2.66gz
256mbs rdram
dell mobo i850E chipset
80GB hardrive 7200rpm
Geforce 4 MX420
Creative SB Live! Series
DVD CD floppy Drives

Im wanting to upgrade to 756mbs ram and swap my gpu 4 a geforce 6200 or 6600, will my psu be able to keep up? I saw a review with a system similiar to mine with a 6200 and it used about 210 watts at peak gaming ussage but I was thinking mayb it would b safer to have more than 40w to spare. Also the Geforce 6 series needed 12v supply, thats nothing to do with the AGP slot, its all provided by a direct connector to the psu rite?

  1. Dell uses quality PSU's and should handle it.
    Should not cause harm either by trying it and testing for errors.
  2. Thnx very much
