I doubt you have knackard your card, I can't imagine being able to 'burn it out' by underpowering it. Probably all thats happening is that the card is trying to suck too much power down one rail, which is why you need two. As was already said, buy a molex to pci-e cable, and you should be fine!
Here is a quick link i located that will at least show you what you are suppose to have or be looking for. It is a Molex to PCI-E Adapter. You can locate it at most big online stores too, I just googled this really quickly for you. Hope this helps some.
awesome, thanks for replys and links guys. I am going to call up a local store about that molex adapter. Also...do you really think I should just upgrade the PSU all together for this system? I thought that the PSU would be good enough =/
I only have 1 Sata Hard drive and 1 Sata DVD rom drive. My other hard drives are external and are USB 2.0
I am hoping to not have to get a new PSU and just get an adapter...
The problem with the PSU is it is very cheaply made. And I would say does not even put out the amount of power it says it does. To save yourself problems down the road man i would highly recommend upgrading and getting yourself a better PSU now and save yourself the headache.
Yeah I checked them out but did not get time to read through all of it. That calculator...do you just input what you have and it spits out what you might need? Hrm, I will have to print it out and look it over again.
Yes just input your system and it will give you a base of what you will need with your PSU. Once you know what you can use the first link of his sig and look through it and find yourself a PSU that matches what you need.
