is it true you need a 350 watt power supply to use a geforce6600 gt video card. so if you don't have that much you have to replace your power supply also?

i'm getting the geforce6600gt video card. now i realize i don't have enough wattage in my power supply. is there much difference in the various power supply units? this is turning into a never ending quest. i started out just getting more ram. also whats the deal about plugging an extra cable into the video card?

The 6600gt may need a 350W supply. I also saw 300W quoted somewhere. At any rate it's always good to have a little more than you need. The quality of the power supply does make a difference. A good brand with a lower total output might give you more than a cheaper brand that supposed puts out more. This is by no means an all exclusive listed but some decent brands at reasonable prices include Antec, Powermax, Enermax and Enlight.
