Default Motherboard Help [PICS] [NSF56k]

Okay, the thing is, I gave my brother my old graphics card. Didn't fit in his motherboard. **** #1

We got another motherboard from a friend and the graphics card fit! But the motherboard didn't fit in his case. **** #2

Got a new case, everything fits, I plug it all in, but I can't get it to work. **** #3

There are a few ideas I have, but I will start by listing what my brothers PC is:

This is the thing on his motherboard:

and we have a hard drive, a dvd drive, a geforce 6800 and a 150watt power supply in there.

I have a big grey wide cord plugged into the blue connector, and then it goes to point 1 (hard drive) and 2 (dvd drive). Is that ok?

I also can find no place for this:

Which feels important, but I read that if your mobo doesnt have a slot for it, its ok.

A big problem is, that I do not know for sure where this goes:

I have put it in every combination across the 4 prongs that are labeled "pwr".

Are these important for now? I didn't bother with them yet:

Well, I plugged everything in, put the power switch on the bottom two prongs, the green light on the motherboard is on, and I hit the power switch, and twice now, in between breaks, it has powered on for a split instance. I see the graphics card fan twirl and the light come on.

Please help, and if you need any more info, I will absolutly take pictures, or whatever.



PS. A couple more big views:

"a geforce 6800 and a 150watt power supply"

Let me just warn you, it will not work! A card like that wants minimum 350watt.

INTEL i7 930
3x2gb Corsair Dominators
