Alright, I'm pretty new to all this modern tech stuff as much as i try to keep up with it. Right now i have a 175watt psu and 32meg fanless vid card. I just bought a x1900xt and Aspire 520watt psu with my new system, and im wondering if i need some sort of adapter or anything to plug my power supply into my video card.
Yeah! you will need a PCI-E power adapter but it may come with your PSU.
If your PSU does not come with it you can purchase one. It's a regular 4pin
power connector but with a 6 pin connector on the other end.
haha I just read your comment. No its a compusa custom built (aka piece of shit that needs to die). It has an agp and i checked its version and its a 2x speed agp hahahaha. otherwise i would have bought a better vid card at some point . I think the power supply is part of the reason of why my computer will freeze sometimes, like when burning a cd. my other specs are like 1ghz thunderbird, 256meg pc133 ram, 56k, cdrw. im goin to an x24400 x1900xt and 2 gigs of good ram. its gonna be great im building tomorrow
