Default Graphics Card Qustion

Hey,

I'm just about to order either an XpertVision or Legend Geforce 6600GT 128mb AGP card. So i was looking through the system requirements and i found out that its an AGP 8X card. My AGP slot is only 4x so will this card work?

I'm also not sure about my power supply but i think it may be enough... is there a way to find it out without opening my case? The minimum for the card is 350watts.

Yes, it will work in AGP 4X. Mind you the card might get a little bottlenecked by that, but it will still perform nicely.

I havent heard much about the quality of Xpertvision and Legend vid cards. Make sure you do your research on them to assure yourself of quality.

As for the PSU, have a look here:

Go with an EVGA, MSI, LEADTEK, BFG, or GIGABYTE
