Question about ASUS P5VD2-MX SE Motherboard
I'm not sure what to upgrade PSU or motherboard. i don't see anything on my screen its like on idle state. i don't have a 6-pin connector on my PSU so i bought a 4-pin to 6-pin converter. the fan on the graphics card is working though but nothing on my screen.
What I beleive is your problem is that a single 4Pin connector doesn't provide enough of the right power connections. I have a 9600GT and like you my PSU doesn't have a 6pin connector. But fortunately for me the manufacturer of my card (BFG) had the Foresight to include the adapter that I need (Which was a Y cable with 2 4pin (Molex) connectors to one 6pin (PCIe) connector.
First thing I'd do is check ALL of your packaging to see if your manufacturer also included such an adapter. It may be hiding (Taped to the inside of the cardboard packaging or stuffed in a bag with papers/warranty info)
Retail boxes usually list the parts included so you can look to see if a "duplex molex to PCIe" is on it.
If this search proves futile, you might check at your local PC hardwarestore (Best buy, Circuit city, or if you have a specialty store like MilwaukeePC here in Milwaukee)
If that is not an option and you have a credit card/Paypal account you can try an online retailer such as NewEGG or CDW jsut add the dot com to their names for their websites.
I hope you find this Usefull
