Is not Reading My Geforce GTX 260 Card


What do you mean connect wire to graphics card?

A) Computer is to be OFF when connecting a monitor cable.

B) Computer is to be OFF, and unplugged from power; when plugging the power cable from Power Supply, into it.

You are also supposed to be Following Anti-Static Precautions.

What Power Supply are you using?
Manufacturer name, and model number. Post back in a Comment.

Motherboard requires about 150 Watts by itself.

That isn't including what the Processor (CPU) needs, Ram Memory needs, optical drive/s need, computer case fans need; AND what the Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 graphics card needs.

It needs 225 Watts by itself.

(Manufacturers usually state around 500 Watts MINIMUM.
This is in reality based on a COMPLETE computer system, and NOT just the graphics card itself)

What do I base that the GTX 260 needs 225 Watts?
(I see that as the -> Maximum, though )

A PCI Express x16 expansion slot on a motherboard, is only capable of 75 Watts of power.
That is why the additional power cables were brought out.

The 6-pin PCI Express power cable that plugs into the GTX 260, is capable of an additional 75 Watts of power.

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 requires using TWO 6-pin PCI Express power cables

That means 150 Watts of additional power.
75 Watts + 150 Watts = 225 Watts

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-260/specifications

"Supplementary Power Connectors -> 6-pin x2"

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

If you are using just one 6-pin PCI Express power cable, '
this = NO.

NOT enough power for the graphics card.

What will happen?

A) The PCI Express x16 slot connector oins, will burn
B) The gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card, will burn.
C) The connector on the graphics card, that the 6-pin PCI Express power cable plugs into, will burn.
D) The connector on the 6-pin PCI Express power cable will burn.

The graphics card will burn up.
Too little power.

IF, your Power Supply has enough power, and IF there are two 4-pin Peripheral power cables that aren't being used; you can use a 6-pin PCI Express power adapter cable.

Example of 4-pin Peripheral power cable,

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

Example of 6-pin PCI Express power adapter cable, was shown in the Playtool link,

The Asus P4C800 Deluxe motherboard uses an AGP expansion slot, for a graphics card, Jorgito.

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_478/P4C800_Deluxe/#specifications

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 550ti graphics card is a PCI Express graphics card. Uses a PCI Express x16 expansion slot,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=356682&CatId=3669

No sir, is the answer.

A) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP

B) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

You need an AGP 8X graphics card.
Here is but one example,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161337

You also need to look at what your Power Supply maximum rated Wattage is. Then look at the system requirements for the graphics card, and see what the -> MINIMUM power supply requirement is.

For the above graphics card it is 400 Watts, OR greater.

Confusion over selection of graphics card


I don't think whether it's compatible or not is the issue with graphics card, what you need to make sure is that you have a good power supply for the cards' needs and that your motherboard has a decent FSB speed (Front Side Bus).

I've compared the specs of your motherboard to the graphics card. That looks abolutely fine, only other thing you'll need is a decent power supply, I suggest 750 watts or above as you will need 2 molex plug connections for that card. Isn't the best motherboard in the world for it but It's going to be better than the built in X3000 shared graphics you're currently using!

If you've got any other questions regarding this just give me a shout!

Bought a Nvidia Geforce 7800 GTX 256MB Graphics card


errrr.... do you mean the 6 pin pci-e power plug and lead that normally comes off your Power supply?

You can get converters leads that change the pinout of 5.35 HDD power to 6-pin pci-e but this is usually NOT RECOMMENDED for any GTX series of GeForce.

You usually need the dedicated PCI-E RAIL (with its own PCI-E lead/connector... or even better x 2 of them) on your power supply for these builds.

Once again.... i definately do not recommend converting one of your other power outputs to run a GTX. At best it will not work.... at worst (though unlikely) you may end up damaged your shiny new GFX card.

If you do not have a 6 pin PCI-E lead and plug running directly from your power supply to run this card.... you need one. Do you happen to know the model of your current PSU?
