    The card does not have a fan, but yet, there is a 2 pin cable supplied in the retail box. On the card, the connector is also present, however, the 2 poles need to be connected to the MB. I have not connected this to my MB, and the card works well! So why supply the cable? What voltage des it need if we were to connect the cable to the MB?



    Any experiences/suggestions?

    I can't see any power cable from the picture at the nvidia site. The only power connection I see is for the heat sink/cooling fan, which connects to a connector on the video card itself. According to the specs, the card only draws 50 watts, so I don't see why it would need a power supply connection. Do you have the manual?

I would look carefully on the video card. There is a place to plug in this fan.

Its a GPU problem.
It can be overcome by doing reflow technique.
You need to do following.
1. Uncover ur PC casing
2. Locate the nVIDIA PCI-E Card.
3. On the card, locate the power supply pin of GPU fan.
4. Remove the pin.
5. Switch on ur PC.
6. Still u may get scrambled display/wavy screen, but wait for 5 minutes.
7. Press reset button on ur PC.
8. Ur PC might work.
9. Switch it off.
10. Connect the power supply pin back as it is.
11. Power on ur PC.
thats all.

Removal of fan power, makes the GPU to get high heat, it a reflow technique.
Remember, not to touch the GPU portion (heat sink), as it may be in higher temperature.
Try this, it works most.

Nvidia geforce 9500 gt gpu work on asus p5n73-am


Hi!

Nahh...you can use that gpu with that mobo, but i wouldent recomend it. The GPU - Requires NVIDIA HybridPower™- enabled motherboard, and that mobo dosent have that. It might work but you cant use the full power of that gpu on that mobo. And beside that, that gpu is bigger then the mobo itself
I sugest you to buy another mobo, the gpu you looking at is a good one but your mobo isent that good.

Here is the spec for the GPU:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_geforce_9500gt_us.html

And here are the spec for that mobo:

Good luck

Where do i plug the power supply from my 7900GS to??


you need a Power Supply with a 6-pin PCI-express power connector, or either a 4-pin molex to 6-pin PCI-e converter. One of these converters should probably came with your graphics card.
The power connector in your card is located on the top-right corner if you pick it with the GPU facing towards you.
