    I'm looking to update a PC that's fairly old (512mb RAM, 1.5 Ghz Pentium). I was thinking a 6200 because DVD's are regulary viewed on it and I found one cheap and fanless. Question is will a 175W PSU take the pressure? It does 13 amps on the 12v rail.

    Cheers.

    In theory no. Even without the card the system would need at least a 250W PSU to run. But if it does run now, most probably it won't have a problem if you add an 6200 card. The 6200 uses very little power. Still, 175W is in theory too little

    It's been running fine for about 3 years :). Just rung up the seller (found it in a local paper) and I think he's got a buyer. Might need something else.

    Should run just fine.
