i was thinking about getting a 9600gt low-profile card by sparkle (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) for a slimline but a reviewer says i need to make sure i have a 6-pin connector? also, i have a 220w power supply, is that good enough for this card?

i was also wondering about sparkle as a manufacturer and about the slimline and low profile cards in general (by the way its an hp pavilion slimline s5120f http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168...)- i just got this computer, should i exchange it so i can get a regular graphics card- the only other computer in my price range (at office depot) only has 3gb ram and don't think it has available slots for adding...


thanks

1. the 220w PSU will not power a 9600GT
2. don't ever buy anything from office depot, if you want to buy a PC go to newegg, tigerdirect, or check out the PC manufacturers web sites for deals.

would it be possible to replace power supply on this model of the slimline? i read something about custom motherboard or something on another model of the slimline. if not possible, what about on this computer (http://www.shopping.hp.com/shopping/data_sheet/np185aa....), which is at 300w?

and i wish i could buy somewhere else but office depot is the cheapest i've found (and my mom won't buy refurbished... ) I'm thinking I could buy a power supply down the line with my own money- though i don't know how to install it.
