Some cards have a 6 pin power connector. It shouldn't be hard to miss.
If the card is plugged in, the connection would be facing the front.
I found a picture that would help you find what you're looking for.
Some power supplies carry this kind of connection. If it's an older system, it likely won't.
If that's the case, then you need to buy a new power supply, depending on how much the video card needs to run at.
If you have the box for the video card still, look on the bottom or side, it will tell you how much you need.
Is this what you were asking about? I couldn't be too sure.

gateway support shows you have a pci-e x16 slot for a video card

you can choose a non-powered pci-e video card for your system, which might be better for you if you still have the stock power supply in your tower.

or, you can choose a powered pci-e card if your power supply is powerful enough to run your system AND a pci-e video card too. a powered card will have a spot for a 6 pin (or 2x 6 pin or sometimes a 6 pin and/or an 8 pin) power connector that comes from your power supply to the video card ... you may have to replace your power supply to use a powered card, or get a pci-e power adapter (not the preferred method, but sometimes works).
here is an example of a non powered pci-e card
4be000da-0366-469d-a4e5-7e856ed11d23.jpg
and here is an example of a powered pci-e card, see that black connector near the back of the card, that's the power connection
d14f2193-6517-4757-bb64-295e7b40c008.jpg

and the 6 pin connector from the power supply looks like this (and power supply adapter shown also)

does this help?

Howe to connect the power cabel to my new graphic card


Firstly, you need to have a power supply that meets the power (Watts) and current (Amps) of your card. Check your video card's documentation to verify this, and look for a sticker on your power supply to give you more information about your power supply's Wattage and Amperage ratings.
Next, if your video card needs additional power (it will have a molex 4 pin (like a floppy drive uses), or a 4 or 6 pin PCI Express Power plug. In case your power supply does not provide you with this type of power connector, many video cards include a 4 pin Molex to PCIE adapter. Again, make sure you meet the power requirements for your card, or it will likely die prematurely due to under-current conditions.
If you are using an adapter, plug a hard drive or CD-ROM drive power connector in on one side and to the video card on the other.
IF your power supply provides the correct power connector, use that one side goes to the power supply, and the other to the video card.
(It's less hinky that way, and I think it gets it off the same circuit with the other devices.
Good Luck!

Just installed mobo ms-7091 m atx but find it as no video out ports how do i get a picture.i know its old but its my first attempt at building pc can i just install a graphics card.


I found the user manual here :
http://217.110.237.70/Manuals/Medion%208383XL%20mit%20MS-7091.pdf
Your motherboard provides 1 pci-express x16 slot, so you will need to install a pci-express video card.
Try to get a video card that doesn't need to be powered by the power supply. There are some out there that don't need to be powered, but .....
Most, but not all, pci-e video cards need to be plugged into your main computer power supply to work. If your power supply was designed to power a pci-e video card, it will have a 6 pin pci-e power connector to connect to a pci-e video card. If your power supply doesn't have this connector, you should replace the power supply with one with the pci-e power connector.

No, if you attempt that then your computer with either not work because of video card errors, or it will boot up and run for a couple hours and then the graphics card will most likely melt due to insufficient power to the fan. Your best bet is to return the video card and buy a video card that is compatible, or buy a new power supply with the connections that you require.

I HAVE A HP PAVILION SLIMLINE (S5310F) AND WANT TO PUT IN A VIDRO CARD, SO I NEED A LARGER POWER SUPPLY. HOW DOO I DO THAT?


Replacing the Power Supply DEPENDING on the power needed? you might have to settle for a slower, weaker performing video card. Make sure you check the video card power supply specs needed.
Chances are you will max WATT at about 300WATTs less then what you'd need to power a gaming video card. OR you could do as I'd do.
Remove everything and place it all in a standard tower case - install a 650WATT power supply in to the new mid/full size case and BAM solution found.. Have fun and a great day to ya.

There are two types of video cards, Ones which power themselves for the Slot and other high end ones need to be powered from the supply. Most video cards are provided with a cable like this one.7c6778b.jpg You will need this cable in order to properly connect your video card to the power supply.

I want to upgrade video card for my pc(HP Pavillion a1120n) i wanted to know what kind of video card is compitible with my pc. please help thanks. ;)


From what I gather, your computer has a PCIe v1.0 slot for a video card upgrade and comes with intel on-board video. So you will need a PCIe 2.0 video card (v1.0 are no longer available and 2.0 are backwards compatible)

I assume, like most PC's, yours has a 350-450 Watt Power Supply. Check your power supply to be sure, you just can't put any video card, you are limited to the available power from the power supply. If you want a top of the line video card for gaming you will need a more powerful power supply. If all you need is better performance and better video quality (DVI/HDMI) then any sub $100 dollars card will do.

I cannot emphasize enough, check your power supply wattage capacity and the watts required by the new card before buying.

Also, do you have additional power connection from the power supply for the new card? most cards, not all, require a 6-pin PCIe power connector.

For the average user I recommend:
