I am in the market for a new cheap video card and after some research I have settled on a GeForce 8600 GT.
However, my question to you guys is, will my 300 Watt PSU be enough for it?
I filled in some form on a website which I cannot find again, relating to your power consumption based on what components you have in your PC, and it was quite a bit lower then 300 with the new graphics card on it. But I thought it would be better to ask here where people are helpful and know things rather then relying on some online form.
If you can afford it, the more complete version identifies power requirements for each leg - it is very important with todays compononets to know in particular the 12v requirement as well as total wattage.
