Hello and thank you to all of you who are reading this post!
I am seeking help because i bought a new graphics card (VTX3D HD 7870 X Edition) and i put it in my motherboard and the fan is spinning but she is not getting recognized by my computer and i don't know why! I downloaded this bios file witch i think its the latest one
If you didn't plug in the 6 pin power for the card, its probably why you're not getting an output. There should be a 6 pin that's on your power supply.
Nope only have molex cables
Guess il have to buy a adapter cable right?
If your power supply doesn't have the right connectors it is very possible that it will not be able to power the 7870 so I suggest you buy a new one.
I recommend the Corsair CX500 500W PSU. For around $70.00 you get excellent 12V rail power output which is plenty for your card.
I'm running and i7 and an over clocked 7970 with the CX500, it is a very good buy.
You should be using a 500 watt power supply with two 6-pin PCIe power connectors.
I have a 500w psu i made a previous thread to see if it would support my new graphics card and they told me it did i even took a picture of my psu and everything just to make really sure that it would work so technically it would be something like this right??
