Ports on the card? uh.. not sure.. however, a big YES to the Geforce 6600 - just make sure it has a "GT" after the 6600. reason = substantially more power for your $$$

If you are talking about this:

That is the molex connector which you connect the power to.

If it is this:

Then that is the SLI bridge. Make sure your motherboard has a PCIE slot.

If none of the above, maybe the capacitors?

Rave reviews on the 6600. Good solid card for the price. I agree with getting the "GT" version too. Might be a little more $$ but it will pay off.
