    Both of these cards should be AGP 1.0/2.0 spec compliant. 1.5v across
    the AGP bus.

    thanks for the response.

    I was looking more for a watts total

    The reason is I have a tyan 2460 dualie with past spec cpus and
    it is not recommended to run with a heavy draw video card.

    Already doing it with the ti4200 so I'm hoping that the 9600xt
    draws the same or less...

    If I new the watts, or amps for that matter, I would know if
    I'm going to stress my system more...do have a 550 enermax

    I remember reading that a 4200 draws 12 watts and a 4600 draws 15 watts.

    I think it was a Heatsink mfg advertisement.

    Don't worry about it...

    I've run dual CPU with 5-drive RAID-5 with 15,000 RPM sci drives, 3
    NICS on 300watts...

    Oh... and a GF-5900-128 on 225watt PSU.
