I was under the impression that the amount of power a video card uses is pretty important in deciding which to buy...
None of the video cards I'm looking at on newegg offer a power supply need...?

Advice? remember, I don't know what I"m talking about so if I'm wrong, tell me.

some cards need a four pin some need a 6 pin and some need 2x 6 pin

i would say if u have over 600w than u can power most cards (no sure about the super high end) if u have over 1000w than u can sli of CF almost anything. I think

I'm looking at a 750W PSU and I'm gonna want to run an NVIDIA GTX 260 on it. I see the 260 requires a 2x 6 pin but now actual power unit.

give us the link to the PSU. We'll let you know. More than likely you will be fine. I am putting a 260 in mine with an 8800gt for physx and i've got a 700W.

That's more than enough, you'll be perfectly fine.

My 4870 X2 runs perfectly fine on a 750W PSU just for reference.
