  1. It should be compatible, because it has a PCIe @16 slot, however, there are a number of cases where it is not. Maybe someone with more experience could explain more.
  2. Oh, I just noticed there is an integrated graphics card in your PC. Did you try disabling it?
  3. Thanks Tig. i got it running. The install makes no mention of plugging in a 6 pin power lead from the power supply cable bundle. i pulled the card and noticed a six pin connector recessed in the back of the graphics card. Once plugged in, the card now behaves normally. i appreciate your help.
  4. Damn, how did I miss that :D Anyways, I'm glad you got it working!
  5. :)

    Thanks. Maybe someone from XFX will take note and correct the install guide. i appreciate your input.
  6. I'm enjoying every post I write :D no big deal :D
