My AGP GEFORCE 256 has broken, fan has packed in but it was linked to a DVD hardware accelerator card so playing dvd's is a no no. It is a P111, 384mb ram. Would this card work in my system
Nvidia Abit Siluro Geforce 4 Ti 4200 128MB 8X AGP OTES?
I have done a bit of research but totally lost. My PSU is 200 watt according to the DELL spec. PC was bought 1999. I heard gone things about the ti 4200 so it may be ok for dvd's using software. If my spec is too old say so I wont be distraught I can try for a second card like I had already.

My port is 4 x agp I think but cant find out what the wattage required for the ti 4200 is!

Difficult to say, even Abit click here don't quote power requirements, but I feel that 200W is likely to be a bit low.
If it's only the fan that's gone on the old card, why not replace it click here .

im guessing your psu will be fine, look at your agp slot on the motherboard click here

"to get the fan off is a swine"
I know, having recently swapped the fan on an old Voodoo card, damned thing was epoxied to the chip. The hint I found on the web was to bag and seal the card and stick it in the freezer for half an hour. Glue went brittle and I pried the old fan off, still required fair amount of BFI, not recomended unless fan actually dead or on its way out.
