i have upgraded my power supply to a 550 watt unit and have an XFX ATI Radeon 5770 graphics card installed. The system does not see it. It this card compatible with my PC?

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.

Oh, I just noticed there is an integrated graphics card in your PC. Did you try disabling it?

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.
