No need, unless the FAN requires an external power source, but you can use your powersupply to supply it.

What is the best graphics card compatible with aahd3-hb?


Your mainboard has a PCI-Express x16 v1.0 graphics card. You can use any PCIE v1.0 or version 2.0 card. Make sure that the power requirements for the card are met. Check the specs, most will at least tell you a minimum wattage (400W PSU recommended)
Too little power will shorten the life of the card, or kill it instantly.
You can find the information on your current power supply on a sticker on the side of the PSU. Check this out and either
  • stay within the power supply's specs when selecting a new card
  • plan to replace the power supply when you install the video card

Hi Yasir,


pcsyke_134.jpg

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.

Crashes pc, video and audio go out of sync and frames roll when scene changes


This sounds like your power supply is not powerful enough to provide all of the power required for the boards you have added. If the system crashes when you launch a graphics intensive program, your power supply does not have enough reserve capacity. The Pinnacle Graphics cards require additional video cards. Depending on the card used, it can draw as much as 120 watts when first accessed and more than 50 watts when running. You should check the specifications on your power supply. It probably needs replacing if you are going to continue to use the Pinnacle Graphics Card.

Installing radeon hd 2400 pro


Verify that your Power Supply meets the requirements of the video card. Some Video Cards require a 400 Watt Video card. In some cases its always good to go higher than that, depending on how many devices are in your computer.

How old is your power supply? Some power supply's over time will not produce the same amount of wattage when it was new.

Is it possible for you to try the video card on another computer? It could have arrived DOA. In which case you may need to return it.

Good Luck

http://www.directron.com/slireadymb.html heres a list of SLI ready motherboards. dont gotta use this site to buy it just giving you and idea of whats out there for you.

Seems from what i gathered that as long as its an SLI ready motherboard with a open 16x PCI-E compliant slot and of course its gotta fit your tower. Find out the form factor of the tower then also make sure that it fits the correct type of ram that you have and prosesser. Then u should be good to go!

Supply voltage issue...


the x1650 card requires extra amperage, not extra voltage. It runs on the same 12 volts as the rest of the computer. The issue is that if you have an underpowered power supply, of if you have a lot of other devices hooked up, you may need a better power supply to provide enough wattage to the card. As long as you have at least a 400w power supply, I would expect you to be alright.

X1650 xt agp installation problem


check and see if your pc has the recommended power requirements, a lot of the generic power supply's can't support anywhere near the posted wattage. A good power supply is very heavy with big heat sinks. Also check and make sure that the graphics card does not require any extra power connectors. A lot of the newer card require you to either plug in a pci-e power connector, molex plug, or floppy drive power cable.
