thanks for replying you two,
psu rated for 300W max,
stupid thing didn't say anything about power recommendations, even in the detailed installation guide.
and no i wasn't i looked all over the card but only found two little prongs, next to a couple of capacitors, i tried plugging onto that, my computer wouldn't even start when i did that. And for your third question I did that before as well, thinking the same thing, no dice, it showed a blank screen on both VGA ports(all three acually, i eve tryed the other one on the card).
thank you two for your input, but i haven't gotten anywhere, rather i'm more confused then when i started, any other advice?
also, my computer IS the best in my house
no other one i can try on...
again, thank you and thanks in advance.
