Most 250w power supplies will not cut it. I take it this is a branded computer you have - HP, Dell, Compaq, Packard Bell, etc? In which case the best solution (especially if the power supply has the word "Bestec" written on it) is to replace the power supply with one that can supply more power. Even some low-end cards can take a beefy chunk of power just to get going.

i think the only video cards that will run wth a 250w less power supply are regular pci
