I've been looking and looking. Could someone please tell me which single-slot Nvidia card (latest generation 5xx) card to get that doesnt require extra power plugs? I only have a 350watt power supply and REFUSE to replace the power supply just to upgrade my video card.

Thank you so much for your help.

Euh . . . none ? Maybe a 550 but you still have to work with power converters like this ; http://www.newegg.com/Product/ImageGallery.aspx?CurImag... ( jees, longest link ever or so ? ) Nvidea does advice 400W though . . . So unless you've got a really good brand psu i think it won't cut it.

If you want a card that doesn't need extra power, you don't want an Nvidia card. Anything Nvidia makes that doesn't require extra power is so bad in comparison to AMD's cards it's just not an option.

^ +1 ^ NVidea uses power just by looking at it alone.

Actually it's not quite so bad as I made out, but it's still a worse option.

The fastest Nvidia card without an extra need of power is the 440 right? And the fastest AMD card is the 6670. The 6670 is faster overall by a pretty large distance.

I just bought a GT 545. Fastest single slot nvidia card requiring only a 300-350 Watt psu and 4th generation Pure Video HD.

nVidia --> GT440 ddr5 512mb --> bit sucks...i own one...

AMD Rad --> HD5/6670 ddr5 --> good performer considering the small power draw...but a bit of hassle regarding driver issues...

I sure hope you didn't pay $150 for it. Just so you know it's a rebadged 440 GT OEM.
