Sorry, I think I was writing that at the same time you posted. I wasn't trying to rub it in.

I want to get this, but I'm not sure if my power supply will cut it.

My system is mildly loaded, on a 350 Watt power supply, 12 volts to 21 A.

Also, what sort of pin will I need? I only have http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/amama...4P-4P2-Y13.jpg in it, at least from what I can see.

Will my power supply run this card?
Yeah, that's fine what you got 350 Watt, 12v 21a rail. You don't need a whole lot for that GPU but I'm kind of concerned on the PSU make and model? I know there are some 350 watt cheap power supplies, I'm curious to know what you have?
