Is it possible at all to have nvidia 5500 or even 6200 card run without replacing the power supply, since I don't think I can get > 250 watt power supply for this specific old Compaq model?

Thanks in advance.
I think you're out of luck Rick, I didn't see any PSU requirements under 250W for these cards.
