[Novalug] Video card question

What size PSU does the Dell have, and do you have any way (like
using a "Kill-a-watt" meter) to measure how much power the DELL is
using without the vid card? Next question, of course, is how much
power the vid card itself uses.
Is this a card which gets power straight from the PCI slot, or
does it have its own 4-pin power socket?
