Can get the following GPU for $20 but, I'm a little confused on this one.

I assume it will fold, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

The specs listed say DX 12 (feature level 11_0), no idea what that means but the card actually shows DX11 support right on the fan shroud.

It also shows in specs as OpenGL 4.4, but on the card itself says OpenGL 4.2

Power requirement says 350 watt or greater with a minimum 20 amp on the +12v rail. My current PSU has dual +12v rails showing as +12v1 @ 11.0A and +12v2 @ 14.0A. Would that be ok since the 2 total up to 25A, or a bad idea to risk it?

 

Don't know whether the DX support would matter or not, but the OpenGL one should since I'm running openSUSE.

both those rails are lower than

 

a minimum 20 amp on the +12v rail

so unless you can share the load between the your 2 rails then i'd suggest using a better psu with a single rail of at least 20A.
