What is your PSU and brand name? If it is a 400w or better it should run that card even a 300w might run that card. It just depends what the amps are on the 12v rail.

the cheaper ones are the ddr3 versions which are slighly slower.


awesome this one will run with my processor and motherboard as well?

this is what card im using right now.would this be a big upgrade?

GeForce 9300 GE (256 MB) with PCI Express x1 TV tuner card (includes remote control & receiver, expansion card, external IR receiver and IR emitter cable)


i should also say im only using 3gigs of ram as well.

3 GB (2 x 1 GB, 2 x 512 KB) DDR2 PC2-6400

yes its a pretty large upgrade and you should be able to play the game on medium to high no problem with the card.
