Thanks Noggin. In fact I have many accessories in my item like, 1 CD Rom, 1 DVD rom, 1 CD writer, 1 SCSI card, 1 Sound card, 1 agp card, 3 USB device, 1 Casing fan, 1 processor fan etc. This is 3 ghz processor.

I would suggest at least a 400 watt power supply as the amount of peripherals you are running will soon take up the 350 watt supply, but go for a 500w as the price difference is negligable.

Your computer should be able to handle the graphics card with no problem.
The only issue that comes up is how many hard drives or CD Rom drives are attached to the system.
If everything is stock out-of-the-box, you are OK.
I hope that this helps.

It needs about 100 watts supplied thru the power connector situated on it so no, it will not work in the current situation: you will need a new power source, of at least 400 watts.

Running Windows 7 Home Premium, recently tried installing Radeon X1300 AGP video card, and computer won't display anything or boot with it installed. With card unplugged and using onboard video it still...

Hi - I believe you might be suffering from one of two (or even both) problems. The video card sucks lots of power and I believe has a separate power connector on the card that should be connected. The type of connector varies with manufacturers; from a four pin floppy disc type to a molex type connector or even something proprietary.
Secondly -- It's recommended that you have a 350 watt or higher power supply in your system.
Either issue could keep your machine from booting.
Good Luck, Mikeywaf

Upgrading video card

Unless you are working with 3D models your gains in upgrading your VGA card is minimal as photoshop is knowns to be more dependent on the size of memory, speed of memory installed on your machines as well as the speed of the hard disk. The processing power of the CPU also can be an important factor than the graphic card.

However if you are set on going for a new graphic card, I would advise you that you get a new card such as the 8600GT or the ATI 3850 (Similar in price but faster than the 8600GT and 7600GT and uses the same or less amount of watts!, and also does not need a the 6pin connector for additional power).

Going back to your power issue, you have not stated your power supply's wattage or amperage, or if the power supply is generic or branded all which influence the decision to get a new power supply. However if you have a power supply that provides a true 300W you should be fine to run any of the cards stated above.

With regard to the bus issue, if you have a PCI-Express bus you should be fine in getting any of the new cards, but if you have AGP you will be more limited, though i know there are 7600GT (old stock) which are for the AGP slot, and only AMD (ATI) released there R2600 range for the AGP slot.

Hope the information is useful :)

Is the 350 watt power supply unit ok for EVGA Geforce 6800 graphics card ?

The big issue with a power supply unit rating is the total peak load that it has to deal with, which you calculate by adding all the rated loads of all the parts of your pc that are connected to it, and add yourself an extra 20% for luck. The motherboard, the HDD, the fans, the drives, USB devices, modem, and many more. If you have enough wattage left to accomodate your graphics card then it should be fine. If in doubt, for the cost it is always better to upgrade your power supply to a larger rated one, rather than overloading a smaller supply or causing low voltage problems with all your peripherals. Here is the link for your graphics card manual if you need it; Check page 5 reference the supplemental power adaptor, and check your power supply has an connector for it. If you want to identify the power consumption ratings for each part of your pc, most will be written on the component somewhere, some in the manual, and some you have to guess by checking similar items ratings online. If you want help with this please post again and we can certainly try. Looking at the card, my guess is that a system that can justify such a nice card is likely to be pushing a 350w supply already, I'm guessing what your system could be like and I would put a 600w or more supply in it as soon as i had the cash to do so. post back all the details of your machine and i can figure it out if u like. This link takes you to some other interesting info about your graphics card. Mostly a power supply that cannot deal with the demand will inform you by shutting down or committing suicide, although occasionally other components can be damaged by poor power supply, the chance is minimal with many newer items, and it should be worth trying. The fan performance of a power supply often governs how well it can deal with long periods of high load - give it a proper clean, and remember to check always that it is running. if you want, you can install another fan on the outside (blowing the same way), but unless you power it from a different source then you don't really help much. Instead of getting a larger power supply, you can just get another (perhaps from an old pc) and only use it to power the graphics card - best left outside the case for overheating reasons. Hope this all helps :)
