Yea, I appreciate all the feedback here.

Right now I'm planning to buy a new 600w PSU probably. Or maybe a little stronger. Something like that tho. That will give me a chance to hook it up on my HP tower at least.

I'm also still considering building a new PC that is much nicer that this card would work much better in. I've never built a computer for myself but for the last year and a half I've worked in manufacturing and built like a thousand or more computers. Not necessarily tower PC's for home use but rather industrial grade stuff, rack mount servers, etc.

Since so many are wondering, the card was sort of perk of the job. It's used. Had some modifications on it I had to undo and put it back together the original way. I dunno if it works right even yet. Looks like it should. But because of it's state, it can't really be sold or anything anymore and I guess the ppl in charge are smart enough to not just throw nice things away even tho they can't really use it in any capacity anymore.

Assuming it works well when I get a new PSU, I'll look deeper into buying the rest of the components needed to build a nice new tower PC.

You will save a bit of money not having to buy that GPU, but GPUs become dated fast so build soon.
