I'm currently running a fanless eVGA 7600GS pci-express card. It's a good card, but I've upgraded to a bigger LCD (1900x1200) and it's having a little trouble keeping up.

I'd like to upgrade, but I'm concerned that anything with a molex or pci-E power connector will draw too much juice and occasionally fail (crash, no video, whatever).

So, what's the fastest nVidia card I can put in this little box with a 240 watt (proprietary) power supply?

Depending on your setup, the 7600GT should have no trouble with a small PSU, but that's the highest I'd go. It doesn't need an external plug (anything above does), and even works with 20 pin ATX PSUs very well.

But, to be honest, anyway you look at it, a 1900x1200 LCD with a vidcard that fits a 240W PSU is kind of a losing situation.

I had a 7800 GTX in a ST20G5, a 7950 GT should have no issues either.
