    Any of them will work with your current PSU. Just make sure to plug the power cord before turning on your PC or your card will burn.

    Powerful cards require additional power. That's why you must plug the power cord from your PSU to your video card, just like a hard disk drive.

    It's called a MOLEX connector, for future reference
