Default Re: PCI Express x16 power connector? Help?

Uhh I don't know it just says:

nVidia GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB GDDR2, 580Mhz Core, SLI Ready, PCI Express 2.0

9600 Series single slot solution, full microsoft directX 10 shader model 4.0, HDR lighting


By the way I just realized that this card also says minimum power supply required: 500 watt, except it then goes on to say, "Minimum power supply requirement, based on PC configured with intel core2 extreme processor QX6700"

So does that mean that if I have an intel core 2 duo e8400, that I will be fine with a 450 watt?..

It just seemed safer, and the price was so low. And it has pictures of crysis on the back.. and it came with company of heroes for free.

I really just wanted a card that could play left 4 dead on max settings.. so this will definitely do.

In your opinion, did I screw up?
like hikaricloud said, what one. there are 2 differnt versions. one with 48 stream processors and 96. you want to have the one that has 96 stream processors.

you can use GPU-Z to find out how many SP's your card has.

EDIT: looks like it is the one with 96 SP's, but yuck. only GDDR3 the 9800GT would have been better.

Not so good D:

Plus for around $100, you could have gotten an HD 4770, which beats both the 9600GSO and 9800GT/8800GT..

But it will max out L4D, heck most Medium Range cards do depending on your resolution
