So my 2 year old ibuypower computer just had its first hardware issue...the capacitor on my 8600 GTS blew. So, I went out and got a Galaxy GTS 250 and plugged the beast in. Only problem is, this hasn't fixed my problem. I still get no video signal being sent to my monitor???

comp specs:
motherboard: P5NE-SLI
memory: 2g
PSU: NZXT PP500
GPU: (obviously) GTS 250

Only thing that I can see is the GTS 250 says it needs minimum 450W and a 12V@24A. If i'm reading my PSU right, I get 500W and 12V1@16A/12V2@17A...? Do I need a new PSU or is there something else I'm missing? Thanks

The GTS 250 says it needs minimum 450W and 24A combined on the 12V rail. Your PSU is enough for the card.
Did you plug the 6pin connector to the card?

there were two 6pin ports on the card, i already had one vacant 6pin cord in the system to use (courtesy of the peeps who built my comp) and i plugged a second 6pin connector into the card and just attached the other end to the first open power cord i saw...does attaching the power cords require more depth to hooking up the gpu?
