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

Is not Reading My Geforce GTX 260 Card


What do you mean connect wire to graphics card?

A) Computer is to be OFF when connecting a monitor cable.

B) Computer is to be OFF, and unplugged from power; when plugging the power cable from Power Supply, into it.

You are also supposed to be Following Anti-Static Precautions.

What Power Supply are you using?
Manufacturer name, and model number. Post back in a Comment.

Motherboard requires about 150 Watts by itself.

That isn't including what the Processor (CPU) needs, Ram Memory needs, optical drive/s need, computer case fans need; AND what the Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 graphics card needs.

It needs 225 Watts by itself.

(Manufacturers usually state around 500 Watts MINIMUM.
This is in reality based on a COMPLETE computer system, and NOT just the graphics card itself)

What do I base that the GTX 260 needs 225 Watts?
(I see that as the -> Maximum, though )

A PCI Express x16 expansion slot on a motherboard, is only capable of 75 Watts of power.
That is why the additional power cables were brought out.

The 6-pin PCI Express power cable that plugs into the GTX 260, is capable of an additional 75 Watts of power.

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 requires using TWO 6-pin PCI Express power cables

That means 150 Watts of additional power.
75 Watts + 150 Watts = 225 Watts

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-260/specifications

"Supplementary Power Connectors -> 6-pin x2"

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

If you are using just one 6-pin PCI Express power cable, '
this = NO.

NOT enough power for the graphics card.

What will happen?

A) The PCI Express x16 slot connector oins, will burn
B) The gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card, will burn.
C) The connector on the graphics card, that the 6-pin PCI Express power cable plugs into, will burn.
D) The connector on the 6-pin PCI Express power cable will burn.

The graphics card will burn up.
Too little power.

IF, your Power Supply has enough power, and IF there are two 4-pin Peripheral power cables that aren't being used; you can use a 6-pin PCI Express power adapter cable.

Example of 4-pin Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Example of 6-pin PCI Express power adapter cable, was shown in the Playtool link,

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.

I also need Your OS.

Before
making yourself nuts, test the monitor on another PC or laptop. If you use a laptop to test the monitor and it doesn't automatically detect an external monitor when booting, use the "F" function keys along the top of the keyboard to tell the laptop to shift to the external display. Remember that we are testing just to see if the monitor is live, it doesn't matter if the screen settings are wrong and the display looks funny. If it doesn't work on a known good computer, the problem is with the monitor, not your PC. If a faint image is detectable on an LCD screen, the problem is with the backlight or the inverter that powers the backlight. A loud buzz coming from an LCD monitor is most likely the inverter circuit failing, though it can go on getting louder for years before it pops.

Assuming the system power comes up, does the monitor power come on? Monitors have a status LED on the front bezel that should show green, orange, or blinking if the monitor is powered on. You can also hear older monitors power on with a gentle sound, though I can't describe it beyond saying it's the sound of a CRT tube warming up. Make sure the monitor is plugged into a good outlet by testing the outlet with a lamp or any other device that will prove beyond a doubt that the outlet is good. Make sure that the power cord is either permanently attached at the monitor end or that it is seated fully in the socket, since partial cord insertion is the most common failure for monitors with detachable cords.
LCD displays don't make any sound when you turn them on, but they don't always have a simple power cord, either. Some LCD monitors are powered by an external transformer, which in turn is powered from a regular AC outlet. If the LCD display doesn't show any signs of life, make sure that the cords into and out of the transformer are fully seated. Some transformers are equipped with a status LED to show when they are operating, though you can also check for live output with a DC voltmeter. The power connection to the LCD display is often awkward to inspect, recessed into the back of the display. The important thing is to make sure it is started correctly, then seat it all the way.
If you see a message on the screen that includes "power" in it, like: "attach graphics card power", "no power to video adapter", etc, it means that you have a PCI Express or older AGP video card that requires more power than the motherboard can supply through the bus. This means you need to run a power cable directly from the power supply to the video adapter, inside the PC. If it's a new build, you may have forgotten or not seated the connector firmly. If it was a working PC, either the power supply lead has failed, the power supply itself has problems, the cable worked loose, or some hardware on the video card has failed.
Earlier video cards that required additional power from the power supply usually took a Molex connector, the same 4 pin connector used to power non-SATA drives. Newer power supplies include one or two six pin PCI Express supplementary connectors designed for power hungry graphics cards. Some PCI Express cards, in the absence of a six pin supplementary lead, will accept two 4 pin Molex leads.

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.

How to set up my 850w icute modular vga psu,because it sounds loud and there is alot of heat


As long as you have replaced all connections that were there previously (make sure you have connected the main power supply, and the supplementary one on the motherboard. Make sure your hard drive(s)/CD drive(s) are connected. And if your graphics card requires a pci-e connecter, do that as well.) That is all the setup that is needed. As the power supplies go up in power, there will inevidably be more noise/heat. But it shouldnt be obnoxiously loud or hot. If the temp of the air blowing from the back of the psu is HOT thats a bad sign, especially if this is a new unit. Make sure that your intake fan is facing the open side in your case and not blocked at the top/bottom of the case. If it is terribly loud and/or hot, i would send it back for a replacement.

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.
