You can run that from a 500w easy...lower than that will depend on the quality of your PSU...try it before you buy another. If you have random crashes when the card gets a load you'll know the problem. It vents heat out the back, so as long as you have a decent airflow in your case you are good. The closest thing to that card in performance from nvidia is the gtx260, and they start at around $160

Best card in that range would likely be this one:

HIS H487QT1GP Radeon HD 4870 1GB

It's 154.99 after mail in rebate of $10.

If you use Bing.com cash back, newegg is currently offering 3% cash back so the math makes it work out to...
