I mean the regular, non-Ultra version, the 128 MB version. Does anyone know what wattage it requires, an "XXX"-watt power supply? I have a 430W.

430W is more than enough for that card as long as its not a cheap brand. It also depends how many other devices you have plugged in.

Well, I don't think I have anything that'd cause a problem. Just a P4 2.66 GHz and a gig of RAM, two hard drives and a DVD and CD drive. It's an Antec, which I think is a good brand, right?

I also have that type of 6800, we call it "Vanilla!" Anyway, I believe it requires a minimum 350w PSU. Of course, you'll want to attach a quality PSU to a quality card like that. Antec and Enermax are brands to look at if you want to upgrade. Next, what are the amperes of your PSU. They are indicated on the sticker on the side of the PSU. The +12v line is the most important in this case.

If you want to know how to make your card run better just let me know and I'll teach you how to do a soft-mod.

Thanks, but I don't have it yet. I'm actually upgrading due to severe artifact problems with my ATI Radeon 9800 "vanilla". Does it run cool, have you had any problems with it?

Mine is made by eVGA and keeps plenty cool with stock equipment. Haven't had one problem yet and I push my system like hell at times. Congrats on the new card, you'll enjoy it.

A few things. All use the same core chip essentially. Obviously the GT and Ultra version use a different core. The major differences are in the RAM used and the overall workmanship. This is my first eVGA purchase and I'm glad I bought it because it works great and I've heard lots of great things about them. You'll also find boards from companies like MSI, Asus, GigaByte, PNY, BFG, etc.
