Default Stupid Question

Does this video card require a PCI-E power cable?

Amazon.com: MSI NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 1GB GDDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI Low Profile PCI-Express Video Card N610GT-MD1GD3/LP: Computers & Accessories

No, not sure but I don't think any under the 650TI need one either

No. Their is no PCI-e Power connection on the Card. I have just recently bought a GTX 750 and thats doesn't need one as well. Just make sure your PSU is powerful enuf to power the card threw the PCI-e Bus. What size is your Power Supply Unit?

Check this out.

For that low of a card the default power to the PCIe slot is all it needs. No new PS needed.
