I have done all my homework on the card it should fit in my case as i measured it, now last thing i need to know is the 9600gt a power hungry card? Will it eat up all my power? please just give me a yes or no answer dont ask me how many watt's/amp my psu has btw 350w
More aboutnvidia geforce 9600gt
what's the rest of your system specs?
I don't think your average 350 watt power supply can power the 9600gt. You might be able to get away with an ATI 4670, but not 100% sure without more info.
i've squeezed out a 4850 on a GENERIC 500watt psu that also only had 19amps on the 12v. using an e4600 (3ghz oc), 2x2gb ddr2 800mhz cl6, 1 250gb 7200.10, 4 case fans, and a dvd writer.
...all stable in gaming and stress testing.
your psu is a quality psu, so im pretty sure, based on my experience, that it could handle ur components + 4850. or a 9600gt.
Unfortunately you wouldn't be able to handle a 4850; in this case its not about amps, its about max power; yit would put you about 40 watts over your current psu. You could, however, get a 4770, or a 5750 for that matter, but your also just shy of a 5770. With your cpu, however, the most I'd recommend is a 9600 gt or an HD 4670.
Also i only have 10.5 Inches of space to put a graphics card until it hits my harddrive so i dont know if a 5750 will fit
Personally, I'd go with either a 4670 or a 9600 gt; the 5750 would be a bit overkill for your system.
If you have 10.5 inches of space, that means the only video card absolutely off limits for you (currently) is an ATI 5870.
