Opening the case already voids your warranty. ALso, i think the BFG 6600GT is not very good. SUggest Evga 6600GT, which is $159 and is far better, your bfg is more expensive and its fan sucks.
I am starting to lean toward the BFG GeForce 6600 GT OC 128MB card instead of the X700 Pro. Both are about the same price it seems.
I will be putting it in the Emachines T6212 PCI-E slot.
I think the T6212 only has 300W Power Supply, is this sufficient? I read this model does not require an external connection to the psu.
Does anyone run one with a 6600GT and factory Power Supply, for the T6212?
I never replaced one before and don't want to ruin my warrenty either, if I don't have too.
