I'm about to order this card:

http://www.cancomputer.com/index.php?sku=4674

It is just to play medium requirement games (Steam games)

It is just to hold me until DX10 and the NVidia 8 series comes out.

What is the minimum wattage for a PSU for this card (I read somewhere it was 250W - I have a 300W PSU)

Is it an okay card for those types of games?

This will be replacing my integrated P.O.S.

Well?

And for those who want to know, it will cost about 74.17 American.

I could go over that price, but I'd probably need a new PSU which is more money... that I don't have.

So what is the best card I can get for $90 CAD?

What PSU you have? And your system specs?

300W? well that should do for a 6600GT PCIE, 6600 PCIE, but go around the 6600's, if not than the 6200. becuase those 7300GS cards you shows me, are 64-bit. That wont get you any where with gaming.. Alest with a 6600GT its 128-bit and a 6600. 6200 can have 64-bit.

Video Card: 6600GT

Computer System Requirements: PCI Express Motherboard with available 16x PCI Express slot. Installation software requires CD-ROM drive. A minimum 300W system power supply. DVD playback requires DVD drive. Operating systems support: Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows 2000.

nah, it just means that your system wont have alot to overclock with ;)



Here let me explain what a diffrent between a 64 and 128 bit video card:



64-bit:
If you get a 64-bit video card, Try it get a powerfull 64-bit gaming card so its still powerfull in games, Like Example: 7600GS 64-bit compard to 7300GB 64-bit.

128-bit , 256-bit:
If your a gamer, you want this. The more bit the memory is the better frames in your games ;)
