Re: Asus Graphics Card

The 2400Pro graphic card uses very light power, so if your powersupply gives a true 250W or more you should be fine. However it also depends on what is your total configuration, as in whats your CPU, how many hard disks, etc as these all consume power.

A good way to check how much your machine actually needs is to use the PSU (Power supply unit) calculator. A good one i came across is

You can find your how to calculate your current PSU wattage from this interesting discussion

Hi Yasir,


As you can see from the image above the molex power from the PSU is connected to the card for additional power. from your post "Where as the power cable is duly connected" like the image?. If you connected the supplementary power, you have to consider the peripherals connected to your desktop and the brand of your power supply.

The link would help you if your power supply wattage is sufficient. Link
If you are using generic power supply, for example a 500 watt power supply the real wattage can be 300-400 watts only.

Using a tru rated supply might fix the problem. try to test a different power supply for your system or try to turn off or remove additional devices that consumes power that might help.

Hopefully this information helped.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My Pc just shut down while i was playing a game. i unplugged my geforce 9600 gt's power and my pc worked again, but without graphics. what is wrong with my graphics card???

The problem that caused the PC to shut off is the GForce graphics card is drawing too much power and the switch mode power supply was overloaded and shut down.
Check the switch mode power supply's wattage, if it is around 300 to 400 watts, it maybe be too low. You most likely need to get a higher wattage switch mode power supply, especially if you added more RAM, disk drives, DVD drives etc. to your PC after the initial purchase of the PC.

Video card shut down

you probably need a higher watt power supply in your case. Most stock ones are only about 350 watt. you'l need like a 450 watt or better with that power hungry card.

Looking to buy a new graphics card

You have a PCI Express slot to put a graphics card in. You can get a bigger graphics card to install in the machine but the power supply you are using in your comptuer is only 300 watts. If the specs of the memory card tell you to upgrade the power supply if its blow x amount watts you will have to do that in order to not run into problems. The good thing about e-machines is that you can upgrade the power supply at the same time. Usually they don't cost a lot of money.

You might have to get one thats around 425 to 475 watts depending on what the instructions tell you. If the new video card you are using is running a fan for cooling, chance are it will need an upgrade.
