How to wire up a 650 graphic card


You're going to need;

A) 2 miles of No.00 wire.
B) SpreadNok cable clamps
C) A pair of Klines
D) 2 rolls of black plastic electrical tape

OR,

your Power Supply needs a 6-pin PCI Express power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

Plug it into the Top/Back of the graphics card.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5247878&CatId=7387

(I watched the video)

Your PCI-Express x16 slot can deliver up to 75 Watts of power.

The 6-pin PCI Express power cable, can deliver up to 75 Watts of power.

Minimum of a 400 Watt power supply is needed.

Looking back at the Playtool link, and the 6-pin PCI Express power cable;

Note the 6-pin PCI Express adapter power cable, shown on the right.

THIS, is what you use if your Power Supply, does NOT have a 6-pin PCI Express power cable.

TWO 4-pin Peripheral power cables plug into it.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

I say again...............TWO 4-pin Peripheral power cables plug into it.

DO NOT use just one.
I don't care, if that is all the 4-pin Peripheral power cables that were left.

If you use just one 4-pin Peripheral power cable, you will;

A) Burn the gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card.

B) Burn the contact pins down in the bottom of the PCI-Express x16 slot.

C) Burn the plug connector end on the 6-pin PCI Express adapter power cable.

D) Burn the contact pins on the graphics card, that the 6-pin PCI Express power cable plugs onto.

Happen right away?
Nope.

Down the road a little after you have forgotten all about it.

("Hmmm, what's that smell? Smells kinda' like burnt wiring.
Wow, my monitor screen just went blank."

News at 6:00
"Nvidia GeForce GTX650 graphics card buried today, along with a motherboard.
Owner cited for neglect, pain and suffering.
Plea bargained to do better in the future" )

Not having a 6-pin PCI Express power cable on your Power Supply, suggests it is a low quality unit, and is underpowered for that graphics card.

Want to burn up a graphics card, just under power it.

[ 4-pin Peripheral power cable;
Also misnomered as a 'Molex' power cable.

Molex was the first company to produce that design of power cable CONNECTOR.
(I don't think they designed it, just manufactured it; if memory serves)

Name stuck. Kinda' of like calling an open-end wrench a 'Crescent wrench' ]

I have installed two diferent graphics card, #1 was MSI 5459 and #2 was a Nvidia GeForce 250. Bth ran fine afor a short period of tme #1 for a month an #2 for about 2 weeks. After these periods of time...


I don't find the MSI 5459 graphics card, William.
Am familiar with the Nvidia GeForce 250 GTS, though.

Using the GeForce GTS 250 as an example, the graphics card requires a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, for additional power, along with the power it gets from the PCI-Express x16 slot it is in.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

The unit is furnished with an adapter power cable, that converts 2 Molex power cables, (4-pin Peripheral power cables, actually), into 1 PCI-Express 6-pin power cable.

Note that the 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, has two Yellow wires in it.

Let's look at a 4-pin Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Note there is one Yellow wire, one Red wire, and two Black wires.

The Red wire is a 5 Volt wire, and not used by the adapter power cable.

The two Black wires are Ground wires, and only one is used by the adapter power cable.

The Yellow wire is a 12 Volt wire, and is used by the adapter power cable.

The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable requires TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires.
(And three Black Ground wires)

This means Two 4-pin Peripheral power cables MUST be used.

Failure to use two 4-pin Peripheral power cables, to that adapter power cable, means the GeForce GS 250 is NOT receiving enough power.

This will burn the connection at the graphics card, burn the adapter power cable connector, and burn the PCI-Express x16 slot it is sitting in.

Takes time, but will happen.

Could this be what you have done?

It also requires 150 Watts all by itself. You need more power for the rest of the computer.

(The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable is designed to provide up to 75 Watts of power. This means 75 Watts of power, also comes from the PCI-Express x16 slot, it is sitting in)

Nvidia GeForce GTS 250,

Video chip location on computer board


If this is a direct reference to the Dell Dimension 5150 Desktop computer, it is an Intel GMA950 integrated graphics chip, soldered to the motherboard.

You will see Intel at the top of the chip, and GMA950 under Intel.

This is Dell Support, and the Service Manual for the Dell Dimension 5150/E510 Desktop computer.

More specifically this is the Specifications Documentation, and the Technical Overview part of the Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5150/en/sm/techov1.htm#wp1058472

I referenced this page, to show you the basic components on the motherboard. Click on the sub-heading - System Board Components, in the list.

At the top of the motherboard you will see the processor sitting diagonally.

Under it you will see the Northbridge chipset, and more specifically in this crude illustration, you are looking at the heatsink which resides on the Northbridge chipset.

(Has a Z shaped clip which holds the heatsink to the Northbridge chipset. The heatsink has a 'meat cleaver' type of design)

In the area that is blank to the Left of the Battery, will be the Intel GMA950 GPU.
(GPU = Graphics Processing Unit, or graphics chip)

If you are wanting to upgrade your graphics quality, purchase a graphics card, and install it in the PCI Express x16 slot.
{In the illustration the slot is over to the Left.
PCI Express x16 connector (Slot 1)

How to know what graphics card is compatible with your computer?

1.You have a PCI Express x16 slot for a graphics card. This is the style of graphics card you need.

It is the PCI Express 1.1 version technology used. I wanted to add this in case you need it for reference.

Be aware of this! No matter what anyone tells you, you can use a PCI Express graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology, in your PCI Express 1.1 slot.

Why?
Because PCI Express 2.0 technology is Backwards Compatible with PCI Express 1.1 technology.

Backwards Compatible. Means it will recognize the PCI Express graphics card utilizing PCI-E 2.0, and will work.

2.You have a 305 Watt power supply. You need to have enough Wattage, (Power), for the computer system, and the graphics card.

I advise using an ATI Radeon graphics card. Which one? Since you have a Pentium 4 processor, 305 Watt power supply,
(With all probability a 18 Amp, 12 volt power rail),
I suggest something along the lines of an ATI Radeon HD3850.

Depends on what you expect from your graphics.

If your reference in your query above is that you believe your graphics chip may be burned out, then I definitely suggest using a graphics card.

The PCI Express x16 slot is controlled by the Northbridge chipset. Doesn't matter if your Integrated Intel GMA950 GPU is burned out, or not.

You can make a copy of your .pst file which essentially holds all of your email. Do a search of your computer for *.pst. Make a copy and paste where you know you can find it.

Click this windows, select burn files to cd from the left menu.
