Quick bit of graphics card advice please

I currently have an MSI 8600 GT graphics card in my pc. This one: click here

I was wondering if it was worth buying the 9600 GSO, listed here click here

......and whether I would notice any real improvements?

Good question. If you have a look at pics of the card it has a PCI-E connector located as follows:

An Asus one: top middle, just above & left of the fan click here / 5th pic on Newegg gives a better view/angle click here

A similar Inno3D one requires it too: top right click here

And the specs at Novatech (Specification tab > System requirements) click here states: "One 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors"

thanks for that - hopefully my card will come boxed with necessary power connector converters
