I recently purchased a new computer that came equiped with an ECS AM3 mother board (MCP61M-M3), 3.1hz dual core CPU and 4gb of DDR3 RAM. Question is, what are the motherboards limitations regarding Graphics Cards, if any? (There is only one PCI-e slot) I currently have a nvidia 9600gt, would that card work?
Stock power supply 430watt.
I also have a 500watt in another system not being used.
as you have a 6 pin adaptor two molex to one 6 pin andone free and one free molex on your board I'd either free up a molex connector if possible, or buy a new psu if possible, depends on the card as to if it'd need external power, you could run a 5670 without needing a new psu and it doesn't need any external power ie no need for a 6 pin
i might suggest looking at that spare 500 watt psu you have and see it it would have the extra molex or an actual 6 pin off the psu itself
