shouldn't it be 2 molex to 6pin plug ? "Y" adapter ?

used card might not be any good

try swapping different molex connectors.

PS just isn't beefy enough ?

yes its a used card my friend has upgraded his and donated this one to me

thanks for the reply, yes it is 2 4 pin molex to 6 pin pcie

card still works in donor tower (my friend has upgraded and given me this card, he took it back and put it back in his pc last night and it works)

ps not beefy enough is my thoughts but vendor insists it is
trying to baffle me with rubbish lol

im going to try a new power supply tomorrow friend who gave me the card is bringing his 750w one out of his tower round to try

Yeah 500 watts should be plenty for your setup but maybe if your PSU is really old and its providing alot less power than it should.
