Hello, can anyone tell me if the Radeon 7750 needs to be connected to the power supply with a 6-pin or 8-pin? I've been having troubles where I'd insert the card into its place and close everything up along with connecting everything. Whenever I try to install the driver for the card it gets an error where it cant find it. I'm not to sure, but I think the card isn't powering up or something so that's why it cant find it. Help me?

The 7750 does not come with a AUX PCI-Express power connection you just plug it into the slot. A couple of things firstly did you install the latest driver from AMD's website. Also can you list the following

CPU:
MOTHERBOARD:
RAM:
POWER SUPPLY:
VIDEO CARD: Radeon 7750
Windows Version:

If your computer is a store bought retail computer please provide
Company Name:
Model Number:

Your computer will handle it just fine. I don't really care for the power supply. Dynex is a best buy brand more of a cheap off brand. They are fairly low on newegg on there tier list. However with that being said you should be fine with a 7750.

Ok thanks, but now there's another problem. The card still isnt being recognized by the computer so I can't install the drivers through the cd installation nor can I find the correct driver for the 7750. Can you explain why it might be that the card isn't being found as new hardware?

I would go through there website and grab the drivers I will supply the drivers for your card.

here you go the newest drivers I would install these. First thing you should do when you buy a video card or anything that comes with a cd w/drivers is either ignore it or toss it.
