the question is very simple since PCI E max is 75 watts
the GPU i fixed is a NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500
it was fully dead but somehow i managed to make it alive again
on my PC im using 2 PSUs to power the PC and the GPU but when i tested this NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500 on it
it refused to turn on the PC withe that PSU setup so i connected the 6 pin to use the PCI E power
its working fine as far as i see but i wonder if this extra 5 watts is a big deal for the PCI E in general and long run
my plan is to sell the card as low end card for low usage or i may use it in my linux PC
love to hear suggestions
