    ATi reccomends that you have a 300w powersupply. both cards will run, but i highly reccomend getting a 350-400w psu for you computer. get a nice one for cheap now a days.

    depends on the power supply...

    as an example... Dell's psu's rated @ 200W have 9700pros installed... of course they use a slightly different rating system :)

    depending also on the rest of your system specs... 250 might be enough... the 9700pro does not use that much power... perhaps around 40-50 watts... off the top of my head...
