hello sir i am struck in a very strange situation i recently bought a zotac geforce gts 250 eco edition 1 gb.But i noticed a strange problem it is giving very low fps in crysis,crysis warhead and many other games.For eg in crysis all settings medium and at a resolution of 1024*768 i barely get 24 fps.I have a cooler master xtreme power plus 460 w which has only 1 pcie*6 pin connector and my gts 250 requires a 8 pin connector.So i used an adapter given by zotac which 8 pin to 2 6 pin connector.So i connected 1 pcie *6 pin into 1 of the 6pin pcie adapter and 1 pcie *6 pin was left.So for this i used a 2*4pin molex connector to 6 pin pcie.Now i connected it's 6pin pcie into zotac's adapter.So i think it may a power shrtage problem.the idle temperature of gfx card is 70 c.Please help me.My system config. are
Intel dual core e2160
1 gb ram ddr2
160 gb hdd
Zotac gts 250 eco edition
Cooler master extreme power plus 460 w
Yes! And I would urge you NOT to use it. The missing pin could fry the card. It could also be the reason why the card isn't drawing the requisite power. Changing the adapter 'may' rectify the issue but I would still advise against it.
