I would seccond this but with an 8800gt. Would run css fine. You could also run a 460 gtx too. Im currently on a 7950, which runs nice so im gonna guess any 79xx series would do the same with room to spare.

8800GT requires a PCI-E power connection though. I believe the most powerful card that doesn't run on PCI-E power and has 2 DVI outputs would be something like a Dual-DVI GT430. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130886 but it would not be much of a gamer at all.

You could try a molex to PCI-E adapter http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812887001 depending on the card and size of your powersupply. Any card capable of gaming is going to need that type of power.

Aw crap, I missed the no pci-e power connectors too. Yeah, I think those 430s is the lowest you can go. Also a card to run games is probably going to require one by now good point.

Without power connectors it's going to be a real light card.

The GT 640 series also works.
