    Evidently, the information from the Packard Bell website is as unreliable as Rage said. I give up.

    Hi there.

    I have decided to have a look at the X1950XT as I just think the 8600 is going way OTT. I just want to know if this requires a PCI x16 slot or just a PCI x1. Also what sort of wattage my power supply would need.
