This is a difference between the old 9600gt and the new 9600gt

<img src="http://www.pixhost.org/show/61/443514_7-13-2009-4-36-40...">

here, the new 9600gt Minimum System Power Requirement is 300W whereas the old 9600 power requirement is 400W. :o 
I have 350W smps so i want to purchase the new 9600gt :bounce:  but the problem is the new 9600gt supports "pci-e 2.0" slot & the old one supports "pci-e 2.0 x16" :(  .
I have "pci-e 2.0x16" on my motherboard... but i want to purchase the new 9600gt because of my 350w smps.... will pci-e 2.0x16 support the new "pci-2.0" graphic cards :??:  ?

frankly you could run the "old" 9600GT on a 350w unit, I ran one on a 305w PSU. It doesn't need a 400w unit.
