I want to inatall a Powercolor Radion 9600 SE card in my Compaq.The Compaq PSU is only 250watts.I've trawled the web for details on the power consumption of a Radeon 9600 grahics card, and found no answer. Its not in the documentation of the card itself.Anyone know where the answer might be?I suspect the card is drawing too much, resetting the motherboard, and preventing recognition. A 9200 series card worked OKIs there a non-Compaq (ie cheaper) source of PSU which would fit - the main motherboard connector is 24-pin, whereas standard PSUs have a 20-pin plug.Philip
