  1. The pci-e slot will deliver a certain amount of power. Only if the vga card requires more, will the card have one or two additional power connectors.
    You are good to go.
  2. Thanks for the reply...after I posted this query I googled the same and arrived at the same conclusion...I believe my card requires about 45 watts and the PCI slot will provide up tp about 75 watts I believe...not a bad card for $29...:>)
