Thats my main concern too, I'm damn tempted to buy a 128MB 9500, but only the 9500Pro and 9700/9700Pro have the connector for the drive power-cable. Presumably the non-Pro 9500 draws rather less power as it only uses half the pipelines in the core. But the modded version is gonna enable the other pipelines and the power consumption will rise considerably, to the same level as a 9500Pro/9700. Its may well draw more current from your AGP slot than official specs but I think most mobos will tolerate that okay (esp. AGP Pro ones). Not sure if the power-circuitry on the card will be so happy. Does anyone know if the power-circuitry on the card is gonna be seriously overloaded after converting a 9500 into a 9700?
