Usually the power quoted is for the entire system, not for the graphic card. The 8600GT systems (even yours with the overclocked GPU) would run fine with any PSU which comes true 300W (Single Rail PSU).

A key thing it seems in the amperage of your 12V, if its less than 18 or 20 (some say it should be even higher), it might not be enough for your graphic card as it does not come with an extra power socket (only the 8600GTS and above have this).

Hi lokarpit,

I've got good news for you! Your Presario's motherboard only supports Supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards, and your GeForce 8600 GT is a PCI Express x16 graphics card.

However, I'm a bit concerned about the graphics card being 1gb? Both Nvidia's 8600GT and 8600GTS came out with only 256mb GDDR3 memory on them. Are you sure you have the right card?

But, if you have one with 1gb, the motherboard won't care, it's the graphics card that actually, will either work all 1gb, or only the 256mb if it's been changed.

Good Luck to you, and my answer is as long as it's a PCI Express X16 card, Yes, GO FOR IT!

Don't forget the leave a rating based on my solution.

This dependson your motherboard mate... the PCI port is the white one on ypur motherboard so all you need to do is line up the pins n just seat the card like a plug.. you might have to undo a backplate where the connector will go at the back of the tower.. screw the video card in n voila
