Default MSI 6600GT on Low PSU

Ok guys, instead of getting my parts all at once, I am going to get them a part at a time. I want to get a MSI AGP 8X/4X 6600GT 128MB card, and I have like a 270W PSU on this older computer. Since my MoBo currently is AGP 4X/8X compatible, I was just gonna stick it in here until I get my new MoBo and case and such. Here is the link to the card:

I don't care if it can run it's full potential, it will soon. I just want to make sure the fan will run ok and keep it cool.

I have a 1.8 Ghz P4 and 768 RAM in this computer. I have the standard integrated audio, and really there isn't much needed to be powered on my computer...

If you know everything else your gonna get inside the PC, then work out how many molex connectors you are going to need.

My 6600GT needs a free 12v molex connector on the PSU (the big ones with 4 chunky pins), this then plugs into the top side of the card. So plan ahead and make sure you have a free molex connector!

BTW, I hope you're planning on getting a new PSU, cos 270w is pants.
