I just bought a new video card, an EVGA GeForce 6200 256MB (or something like that).
Unfortunately, when I opened it and read some stuff in it's box, it says that the minimum power requirement is 300W...and my Sony Vaio PCV-RS620G's PSU is a mere 296W...
When I read my computer's specifications, it says Power Requirement: "Min. 266W 100-120V 4.7A (50/60Hz)" Power Management: "ACPI 1.0 Compliant"
Should I go ahead and install it anyway? I have my Vaio opened up right next to me, with the old card out, and the new card ready to be installed
Should I go ahead and do it anyway? Or should I buy a new PSU?
Thanks a lot =]
