8800 gtx graphic card blank screen or pc reboot if i start any game

Hi!

I have bought an nvidia 8800 gtx graphic card. I put it into my PC, but after this i realised that i need to connect additional power cables from the psu to the card. Unluckily i didn't have the proper cable in my pc (6 pin), i only had 4 pin cables, so i had to buy converter which is able to convert 4 pin cables to 6 pin.

After this everything was good, the card worked, i installed the driver for the card, it works very well.

Only problem: if i start any game, i have a blank screen and i have to reboot my pc, or i don't have a blank screen because the pc makes a reboot on its own.

I have a 475 W PSU. Is this enough for the card? Could this be the problem, or it could be something else?

Thx

GEFORCE 8800 GTX HAS TWO SIX PIN POWER CONNECTORS. sHOULD I USE BOTH OF THEM OR ONE WOULD BE SUFFICIENT


Both must be used and the power source must be capable of delivering at least 700 watts. Real watts, from a good brand , not some noname cheap one.

you must first uninstal the old driver then turn off pc install the new card, then reboot as the blank screen means that the pc is starting up with the old driver and cannot apply it to your new card.

Your hardware wil be found and you will be prompted to install driver cd.
