    I'm feeling Really Really lazy and what wondering if anyone knew a PCI only powered graphics card, i think there might have been a 630 or something along those lines?
    Thanks.

    640 is the highest nvidia card from 6xx series that does not require external power connector. Performance wise 7750 destroys 640 in games though.

    got it, this is just an experiment to see if folding at home will be more consistent with a 640 being my video out card to the 1920 x 1200 monitor because i'm folding with the 2 580's. it hasn't been working as flawlessly as it should be.
    So just a test.

    I'd consider one of those for a home theatre setup, if i upgrade cpu next i'd like to keep what i have and put it to use, having a GPU without power connector needs is appealing, like ..you wouldn't have to worry about forgetting to switch it off and the like, it'd run cool too, being just a lil' movie rig.
    I guess the 740 may be without connector too ..

    Yea, one of those is perfect for a home cinema or non-gaming oriented system. But i've seen ppl buying low-end graphics cards for gaming (i know some people are on tight budget, but at that point i'd just buy an AMD APU).
