Make sure your PSU is at least 300watts though, and you have a spare molex connector.

Turn off the PC, take the side off, look for a spare one of these; click here

You should also be able to read the label on your power supply for its wattage.

hi brundle,

i have a spare molex connector along with another smaller 4 pin connector.my power is 350watts.do i just remove the other card and replace with a new one and connect the molex to it?.will the 6600gt be compatible? and will it play doom3?thats the newest game i own.(sad i know lol).

many thanks
