Okay, so, as most of you who has spoken with me know, I'm pro Pentium 4. My desktop is an original, slightly modified Dell Dimension 3000, with a 250W PSU. Here's my question - can I power an EVGA GeForce 6200? I plan to pick up the card soon because I have a 1080p monitor waiting for me, and Intel Extreme Graphics 2 won't make the cut for that. So I'm gonna get this card, but I wanna know can I power it WITHOUT having to replace this PSU. I'm currently powering 2 HDDs, the main board, 2 CD-ROM readers (ones a writer too), a 56k modem expansion card. Also, another question is, whats the difference between PCI and PCI 2.1? I just wanna make sure, I don't wanna buy a card I have to upgrade a lot for. Thanks for answers in advance!
I opted for the 6200 because it's a very old card that gets powered through the PCI and I know for sure it'll work on my board - because all I have is PCI. On top of that, I read it supports that res, and it's not so much budget, I don't wanna replace the PSU because it is a legacy Dell Dimension 3000 - the only thing thats different from when it came out of the factory is that it has a fresh coat of AS 5 on the CPU. That and there's a second HDD. I really don't wanna replace anything.
