I am looking for a video card able to run games such as Modern Warfare 2. The catch is my PC, a dell, doesn't have any extra power cords coming from it that I could plug into a video card. I have noticed that many cards require this. Do you guys know of any good cards that I could purchase that could run high end games but don't have to be powered with an extra cord?
1) what model dell do you have?
2) is it a standard case or a small form factor? (if SFF you need a low profile card)
3) the best card you can get without a power connector is an HD 4670. It would depend on what power supply you have in your system. A 4670 will run the game, probably at moderate settings.
