  1. Computer: Sony Vaio VGC-RA718G
    Mobo: Asus P4SD-VL

    I recently picked this computer up from work, and to my dismay the graphics card had been changed out to an archaic Radeon Rage 2 Pro. I'm considering buying a decent graphics card but i'm worried that if i buy too powerful of a card that it could cause issues with my motherboard.

    Here is one of the cards I'm considering so that you can get an estimate as to the power of card:

    If i go for the cheaper end, i'm likely going with:

    My question is how do i know if the card i buy is too power hungry or not for this mobo?
