I have a usb outlet on the front of my praetorian case, tried to upgrade my video card with an evga gts250 which will not fit due to the sata drive cords(4) which are plugged in. There are 2 other sata plugs on the board, but if we switch the plugs does the move have to be addressed in the bios? I do not have the motherboard manual. Where would I be able to get one or look at one online?
Thanks a bunch. Mike H., Buffalo

there must be a video card in the first pci x *usually running x16* and the 2nd usually runs at x4. the motherboard will not post at all if there is a card in the 2nd slot but not the first (hence the beeps) you can buy right angle adapters for sata connectors if that helps and makes sense?
1) Power down or reboot your system.
2) As the pc is restarting, press the F2 button to pull up the "Setup" screen.
3) Right Arrow to the "Advance" tab
4) Make sure that all devices are enabled
5) Arrow down to "Miscellaneous Devices"
6) Make sure "External USB Ports" is also enabled
Look at the "tail' of each of the new fans.
They probably will have 2 or 3 wires going into a WHITE-coloured plastic connector. Look for 3 gold-coloured pins on the motherboard -- that will match the holes in the white connector.
The add-in video-card _should_ have a connector that fits into one of the WHITE or BROWN sockets on the motherboard, while the "spine" of the video-card fits flush on the "back" of the computer-case.
Your motherboard probably has a built-in Ethernet port -- there's probably no need to add-in a separate Ethernet card.
You probably do _NOT_ need to cite an ID/password -- just connect your Ethernet port, via an Ethernet cable, to either your router or your cable-modem or your ADSL-modem, and your computer will automatically obtain an IP-address.
1) AGP 8X graphics card 2) Has a VGA, DVI, and HDMI port 3) 1GB of GDDR3 ram memory 4) 128bit interface 5) 320 Stream Processors 6) Core Clock is 750MHz at maximum capability 7) Memory Clock is 1746MHZ at maximum capability
It doesn't matter that your computer system ram memory is DDR Sdram. The GDDR3 graphics ram memory operates independent of the system ram memory.

There are many tools you can use to install RAID stuff. For example Hirens Boot CD http://www.hirensbootcd.net/details/10.2.html - the download may be broken but google it and you should find it quickly. (http://www.hiren.info/downloads/freeware-tools/) Also if you need to boot from a USB then try UNetbooin or some of the tools mentioned on the site.
This should help to install RAID there are many tools on here. What kind of fussy os has to use SATA dvd drives anyway.
You were not very clear with your question. If you mean you have disabled your onboard video, then installed the new video card and get nothing then the card is not compatible with your system OR you got a bad card.
If you mean you simply installed the card, turn on your computer and get nothing until you move your monitor plug back to the original port (without turning off the computer) then you must disable your onboard video by going into your BIOS settings. Follow the instructions that came with your video card or your computer to do that. Usually you get in by pressing delete or F2 while the computer boots.
Try to disable your integrated video card in your PC's bios setting. If you have done that job already or your bios doesn't support it then clean your cards pins or tiny golden terminals with soft cloth.Check whether your card supports the mother board Graphic card slot or not . like in case of "AGP slot" speeds are 2x 4x or 8x and in case of "Pci Express Slot" 8x or 16x. Check *********** board's or main board's manual as well as EVGA's manual for compatibility issues. Hope it works .don't hesitate to contact me agian. thanks
