Anybody know the power requirements of a NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 16mb graphics card?

    The title says it all - Thanks!

    I have a old pc with a 245W PSU and I m thinking about upgrading the card.

    Couldn't find a quick answer to this but if the "old" machine runs okay as it is then it should have no problem with the TNT2 card. They are a pretty old card and were designed for the machines of the day which (by today's standards) were pretty slow and didn't need a huge amount of power to get them going. I assume the "old" machine has a AGP slot to fit the card into?

    Hi yes it has an AGP 4x slot. The old pc has the TNT2 card.
    Im trying to figure if it would be a good idea - in terms of power requirements - fitting a Geforce 2 MX. Not for gaming, just general internet stuff.
    thanks

    The Geforce is a later card and would hopefully have more RAM than the TNT2. Both will work fine because the same is true as I stated earlier - both those cards were built for the slower machines of yesterday.
