Default quick compatibility check

hey guys,

will this

work with an ecs rs400a mobo and a 380 watt PSU? I have that extra 4 pin molex connector... does that mean my PSU is pci-express compliant?

That card requires no special connectors, and if you're running minimal devices (e.g. no multiple hard drives) and there's enough amps on the 12v rail, that card will run. But I would get a new power supply along with that card, just to be safe.

Yes, your mobo has a PCI-E x16 slot so it will work. Also, I would agree that you should probably be safe and get a 400+ watt PSU (better safe than sorry)
Current Build (Hope to finish by late spring):
Intel Q6600 g0
Asus Maximus Formula
geIL Evo 2GB (2x1gb) DDR2
ATI HD3870 X2 or Nvidia 9800 X2?
2x 150gb RaptorX (Have it)
Thermaltake Toughpower 750w PSU (Have it)
Antec P182 Case
HP w2207 22" Monitor (Have it)
