graphics card power required

  jezzabevan 15:01 07 Jan 07

Waiting for delivery of a new XFX GeForce 7600 GS graphics card. How do I find out what is the minimum power supply this requires - had a look on XFX web site but can't find any info there???? Anyone know if this card needs a separate power supply addit to the AGP?

require extra power.


"Another interesting thing is that this card requires extra power -- unlike all the G73 PCI Express versions. This is due to the HSI Bridge and the AGP specification. Therefore, you will be required to attach a Molex connector to this card. This card has one DVI connector, one old 15-pin standard VGA connector and an S-Video TV Out connector."
