Um did you shut the computer off first? I know its a stupid question but i have to ask.

As for power, the pci-e slot does supply power to the card but not all that the GPU needs. on the end of the card there is a 6 pin power plug that needs to be accommodated by a cable from your PSU or by the adapter that was supplied with you GPU.

FYI that card isn't nearly as good as its 384/768 mb brethren. Nvidia really gimped the new version.

the only adapter that came with the card is a little small plug that plaug into a small slot ( not the 6 pin power slot ) and it comes off into to 2 single plugs that i have no idea where they go. Can u buy another power source and plug it into it and if so how many watts.
