  1. LOL - You must have gotten the wrong info packet in the box. Theres no way a gt440 needs 23a - it doesnt even have an external power connector on it. its powered soley by the pcie slot which is limited to 75w. As long as your pc has a pcie v2 (or higher) x8 or x16 slot you will be fine.

  3. It will be fine. Install the new GPU. Fire up Windows and then install the drivers. No worries and have fun!
