  1. with video cards there is dedicated video memory built into the card...so if you are running integrated video that is sucking up system ram installing a 6770 would free up that system ram....you said something about power so maybe you are asking how the card gets its power? if so the card can receive up to 75watts of power from the motherboard slot and the rest it receives from the 6 pin pcie power connector on the card
  2. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814105003 this is the card, it dosent come with he cable, so im thinking its 100% from the motherboard?
  3. no it requires another 6 pin pcie cable plugged into the card...the cable will come from your power supply inside the computer...what power supply do you have in your system? Is it a home built pc or did you purchase it from a company?

    that powersupply will work fine for that GPU...according to newegg it comes with 4 pcie 6 pin power leads but looking at the pic of the connectors it really has 2 pcie 6 pin connectors so you would just take one of those leads and plug it into the connector on the card....did that all make sense and answer your original question?
  7. yes it did thank you :)
