If you can run an x700pro you can run a 6600gt. How many watts is your PSU?

Oh, sorry, I didn't see that... Well, I think both the x700pro and the 6600GT require a 350w power supply... You will most likely need a new power supply. Here is the best one I could find for $40:

If that is to much, then you may need to get one by a not-as-good brand, such as this one for $30:

That would be cutting corners however, and I would not trust that PSU for my PC, however the reviewers seem to like it.

Well then, that complicates things a whole lot. Looks like your only choice for a reliable brand would be $60:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817101515
It is currently out of stock, with no ETA listed. If you really must have it soon, then you will realy need to cut some corners and get this 300W PSU for $40:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817159046
It is currently in stock, but is only 300W. The only reason I recommend it is because I used to have a GeForce FX 5600 which said it required a 250W power supply, but it worked just fine for me on a 200W. I really dont recommend it if you can avoid it though.
