The voltages are standardized for those type of connectors. As long as you have a power supply with the amperage capacity needed, you shouldn't have a problem.

To be on the safe side, you should be in the area of 450-600 watts for the power supply. There are websites that will calculate what you need.

PCI-E version has no power connector, ....................which is why I assumed you were looking at the AGP version in the first place.
