the 7300le upgrade has arrived. i thought it was an 'eco/green' version because it was shown as having 600mhz core clock speed. i'm presuming the fact it has a 6 pin connector means that it is not. i've taken a couple of photo's of the pc and the card. i cannot find a 6 pin connector. can i use one of the loose wires (4pin) and use an adaptor? sandra says my pci-ex16 is version 1
any help is welcome
Thanks everyone for the help and advice.
i had to buy a 4pin molex to two 4 pin lead and a 2x4pin to 6pin lead. it's christmas eve and that's the only way it was going to happen any time soon.
the card didn't fit as the end that has the hdmi/dvi (?)out things (to the monitor) is twice the height of the old card. i couldn't help myself and took the hacksaw to the back of the case and the card. in it went, power connector on, booted up, loaded its own drivers and hey presto.
i gave oblivion a go at 1280x1024 4xaa and high settings. all ran fine.
