looking for help with selecting a gfx card! - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Some cards require a 4 pin moldex power in line! Try not to have anyother stuff pluged into that line.
Any of those or better AGP cards will work fine provided the PS can handle the task...
If it requires a power in line you should have atleast low 20a or better on the 12+v rail ... that spec is on the PS sticker.

OK, It's simple

first step, find your current video adapter in the windows device manager and remove it.

If you have onboard video, disable it in the bios.

Your 6600 or whatever you decide to do (I would recommend the 6600 GT)
will fit into your AGP slot.

The molex connector that The Duke is speaking of is the same connector that powers your hard drives, cd rom drives etc.

Find a loose one of those and plug it into the appropriate plug on the 6600GT.

boot it up, pop in the driver CD, install the driver and that's it, your'e done.

If youv'e reassembled your PC like you said it should be no problem.
