Default Re: AGP card for 200 watt power supply

Most AGP cards should be fine power-wise, at least if they don't use an auxiliary power connector, as IIRC the AGP slot can only provide 6 amps at 3.3V (about 20 watts).

However, it's unclear if it will do much to help with Flash video performance. Flash doesn't use GPU acceleration very well, especially under Linux, it's pretty CPU dependent.
