Howdy folks,

I run a Shuttle X system, AMD 3000+ using a 9600XT for graphics oomph. The graphics card is getting a little long in the tooth (well the whole sysem is, really). I'm trying to find a new card for the machine and I'm running into an information wall. The system uses a 220W power supply, and most of the current generation want 300W or better.

What does the crowd recommend that I replace the 9600XT with, that will run in my system without exceeding the power supply?

Generally I play FPSs or the Morrowind class of role-playing games. Moderately or heavily graphically intensive.

Ok, The processor is AMD XP 3000+, 1G Kensinton RAM (quoed as CAS 2.5 at time of purchase), 1 Maxstor 120G harddrive (running on parallel ATA), no PCI Cards, 1 CD-RW/DVD-ROM Drive, <manufacturer unknown, probably Gainword) ATI 9600XT graphics card. Fan type is unknown, but they are variable speed (and noisy for that matter).
