    Do you think they make any small form factor gaming cards that would work with my little tiny 220W PSU? I don't even know if I have any PCIe cables...

    Probably not...that is an incredibly weak PSU for today's hardware...

    Really? Even though it recommends a 400W? Also, do you know how I could get power to that molex on the Zotac? I actually don't have any free cables. I don't even know why I have a free PCIe 2.0 if they're not even going to give me a free 6-pin, molex, or PCIe laying around. Although, if I could get it to work, any 9000 model would be a great improvement over my integrated 8200 chipset with only 256MB memory.

    After learning more about PC's, I'm blown away that a AMD Phenom x3 @2.16, a 7200RPM HDD, and a 22x disk drive can run on 220W. Pretty cool stuff.

    It's pretty amazing how they can go from this:

    its half height, but it will take 2.5 to 3 slots.

    One for the card, one for the cooler, one for air to actually get into the cooler.
    the heatsink being the size it is, stops this being usable in ITX builds (they only have ONE slot)
    if only they'd made the heatsink bigger, but thinner.
