Insufficient power after upgrade of NVIDIA card

I replaced my NVIDIA FX 5200 with a Peak GEForce 7300GT with 512MB DDR2. placed into the AGP slot. The previous one had a power supply lead but the new one didn't have any attachment point.

The PC then said that as it was under powered, it would reduce operations, although it works OK for normal use. PEAK (Taiwan) initially said that the power would be supplied thru the PCI slot, but the box says AGP !!) They now say that the power supply needs upgrading.

Any thoughts??

Re: insufficient power after upgrade of NVIDIA card

Do you know the wattage output for your power supply?

My first suggestion would be that you need to upgrade to a bigger power supple.

Hp pavillion a1632x

According to this page,

Unless you added parts, or got a different variation of the computer, the A1632X has two available PCI slots and one available PCI Express x16

I'm the GF FX 5200 only came in AGP and PCI packages, the PCI Express model was label as a 5300.

If you have the PCI version, it should work. If you have the AGP version, there is no slot for it in the A1632X

I have dell gx 260 with 2.4 ghz nd 1gb ddr ram with nvidia geforce fx 5200 can u name any graphics card which will be gud enough than geforce 5200...nd agp plz..

You need an AGP 8X graphics card for one.

AMD ATI Radeon series:

1) Better: XFX Radeon HD4650

A) 1GB (OR 1024MB) of DDR2 graphics ram memory
B) 128-bit bandwidth memory interface
C) 320 Stream Processors
D) 600MHz Core Clock
E) 800MHz Memory Clock
F) 55nm process technology

3) Best: HIS HD4670

A) 1GB (Or 1024MB) of DDR3 graphics ram memory
B) 128-bit bandwidth memory interface
C) 320 Stream Processors
D) 750MHz Core Clock
E) 1600MHz Memory Clock

Likes POWER! Better install a 500 Watt power supply, to keep up with the power needed for this baby!
The GX260 supposedly has a 250 Watt PSU. (Power Supply Unit)
Back in the day this PSU was made, the PSU manufacturer 'fudged' the maximum rated wattage.
Actual is more like 60 percent of what is stated.
175 watts!

The above is just IMHO about graphics card choice.

(I have motherboard's with a PCI Express x16 slot, using the PCI-E 2.0 technology.
I use Nvidia graphics cards)

Fx 5200 geforce graphic card

You did not mention if the board your running has an integrated video card on it. If it does & you have added the FX 5200 AGP you need to make a change in your bios. Set the bios to see AGP. Re-check the insertion of the AGP card. Remove the video card. Use a strong flash light & look into the AGP slot. Use canned air & blow out the AGP slot. Re-seat the video card evenly into the AGP slot. Try again.
