I have a Dell 170L tower and I noticed it has a 250 watt ATX PSU and it has 16A on +12V. Is this PSU powerfuly enough to run any standard PCI type video cards. The motherboard doesn't have AGP slot so I have to use standard PCI cards. The onboard video chip uses AGP though. I know there is a GeForce 9500 GT 1GB PCI card on but will this PSU be powerful enough? It says it needs a 400 watt and 12V have 18A PSU but I thought that maybe 16A on +12V would work somehow but maybe I just need to upgrade my PSU to a 400 watt or something around there.

I just need to know forsure if a card like the GeForce 9500 GT will run fine on my Dell 170L machine. If not what is the cheapest PSU I can get that will run it? Will the ones at Ebay that is around $20 will work that is around 400 watts?

Like will this one run any PCI standard type cards?

Or do I need the $30 one that is a 500 watt like this one.

400w is plenty for the 9500gt. Any newer power supply should be fine. I recommend antec, corsair, seasonic, pc power and cooling, ocz, or enermax for quality. Your links don't list the items for sale anymore.
