Hi, I'm getting a Geforce 6800 graphics card. Apparently I need an available "hard disk drive power dongle". How can I check I have one (moreover, what is it?). Also I read that my motherboard needs to be AGP 2.0 compliant or something like that. Given that mine is an MS-6579 does anyone know whether it likely is compliant?

Your AGP port is Specification 2.0 (1x/2x/4x), so the card should work, though at the lower 4x bandwidth.

The power dongle they mean is a standard molex connector. You can check if you have one free by opening your case and checking all cables coming from the PSU. See the bigger power connectors going into your harddrive & optical drive? If you have at least one spare, you can plug that one into the videocard.

Do make sure you have a high output PSU though. Something in the order of a 450-480W PSU. Very much recommended.
