Personally I'd go for this instead click here the sapphire card is definatly one of the best, I don't know if connect is a good make or not and yes you need a seperate power connector as well as the juice it gets from the AGP port it should come with a connector so you can connect it up to your hard drive power connector. The only problem you might have is if your power supply can't supply enough power but to be honest you will have the same problem with most good spec AGP graphics cards as they all require a seperate power connector as well. I've got a MSI GeForce 5900 and it has a seperate power supply same as the 9800 has. By the way this is the Lite edition, exactly the same as the full card only difference is it doesn't come with the games bundle. Hence the good price.
