    upper limit for pci video card powered by an m2-atx?

    im getting an m2-atx in in a couple of days. i also ordered a 2 space pci riser for my epia m-10000 board. i have a pci soundblaster 24-bit card and would like to add PCI video to improve visualizations. but i am not sure how good i can go on video cards.

    i am aware that i cannot draw too much amps on a single rail, but i don't have a clue how many amps a given card will draw.

    is there anyone who can suggest a safe bet? TNT2? geforce 3, mx400 .. higher? i have no clue.

    this would basically be only to improve the vis. during mp3 playback. probably anything geforce 3 and higher would be fine, but im looking for suggestions for starting points, based on good guesses or better yet based on experience.

    thanks

    Ive noticed that not many people will help you on this forum, especially with power supplies and troubleshooting problems. I dont know if there just inst that many M2-ATX's out there in use, or the people who are using them arent willing to help anyon else.

    What none of you noticed is the subforum, FAQ Emporium. You also never notices the SEARCH function. Utilizing either of thse two would have gleaned you your answer, or at least a methodology to obtain your answer.

    Why did nobody answer these questions? They've already been answered repeatedly, and as a result of repeated answers, it was put in the FAQ section.

    Consider yourselves helped.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
