Hello, I own a dell dimension 8500. I recently installed a DAC card from national instruments into one of the pci-express slots. The card needs power, it has a 4 pin molex connector. How do I attach power to the card? I have never done something like this before, other than connect/disconnect power from a hard drive.

Please advise me with step by step instructions.

If it has a 4-pin molex connector, then connect a 4-pin molex cable. This is no different than conencting a floppy or an old IDE device.
