Good point as is the previous what slot...
If its a Desk Top PC, look at the PS and see what "amperage" the 12+v rail or rails have. It will usually look line this for one ... 12v+ and below it it will have something like 18a. if there are more than one you will see more than one 12+v.

I used to have an old Compaq with the same exact integrated video, It was horrible i'm not sure how I ever managed. I know what your going through lol, Any card equal to or better than the 7600gt would serve you well and wouldn't be a major bottleneck.

No, but his PSU will most likely kneel at the powerdraw from a new card

Yeah, I've been looking at the 8600GT. Right now, through the month of May, they're having a deal, $79.99, or $49.99 with a $30 mail in rebate. The only thing is, I don't know if my computer would be compatible. Is there a specific place to go to find out where I could find that out?
