HI I have had a fair bit of trouble installing a new graphics card,
I have bought an asus nvidia geforce gt530,
I have an amd Phenom 9500 quadcore 2.20 ghz
current motherboard is a mcp61 chipset using Amarillo2 socket
I have upgraded the power supply to an antec current gamer 750w which has 12v with 40A grading, this plug into the motherboard with the 20pin and also the 4 pin for the cpu.
I have the card plugged into the PCi Express slot it is a 1.0 motherboard but the card is 2.0,
and the card has no power supply of its own
are there any reasons this setup would not work?
I ahve also upgraded to windows 8.
before I upgraded the power supply, with all drivers installed it would black screen after windows log in,
I tried it with 350 w and still ahd same issue,
after some complications i have had to hard restore and havent got to the point where I can test the 750w power supply,
