i have been trying ot use a super power graphics card (it isn't that amazing but i don't game or anything so is more tha i need anyway), but the colours look terrible when i start up the machine, i assumed this was a driver problem or incorrect setup, but installing the new drivers from the NVidia website didn't work and i couldn't find any on the XFX website, it is a pain to negotiate around...

specs are NVidia GeForce 6200 AGP Card, 256mb VRAM DDR2, badged as an XFX something or other, i can't find the box now.

windows xp professional, with a 1.80GHz pentium 4 processor, 1.5GB of RAM and a PCI FireWire and USB 2.0 card. i was also wondering, my power supply only gives out about 180W and the total with this new card and some other things would make it about 300W that i require, if i don't upgrade it is there a chance that it will overload and damage the mother board, if so, can you just tunr off the pc and swap it out or is there some mthod to doing so???

A 180W power supply is pretty weak.
Even if it's supplying a full 180W constantly that's still not much.
You're probablt lucky you can see a display at all !

I have managed to locate some on the Nvidia site, they aren't for the exact same card, but the equivalent to the one that was rebadged and sold as an XFX card, as I mentioned it was originally based on an Nvidia card, with a new badge. so anyway, hopefully these will work...
