Re: About XFX 9600GT
Welcome to FixYa
Playerx is right the power supply is to low you will need a min of 500watt to power this card....if you continue to use the card with out the right power supply you can mess up the rest of your computer because the video card is drawing to much power from the rest of the system .....
to fix this problem buy a 500+ power supply a 500 watt ps will cost you around 90-100 bucks

Hello limkweenan, the "Minimum Power Suppy" requirements for the [XFX - 7 Series] is 350 Watts, the 'Minimum Power Supply" requirements for the "Newer" [XFX - AGP Series] is 1000 Watts. "I hope this information is helpful? Thanks for using FixYa, paul7of9"
nVidea 9800gt is a good card... probably not a question of if the MB will support it as much as if your power supply will. It needs a secondary 6 pin power connection.
Any MB with 16x PCI slow will run the board. The different RAM types on the MB and Video card will nto matter as much as the throughput of the PCI bus...
2GB ram on you main board, hope you are not running anything serious.... I do a fair amount of video with a 9500GT. Quad Core 2.66, 6 GB ram and am looking to upgrade to an I7 with 12GB and a nVidia 250 or better....
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.
Microsoft Windows Vista -or- Windows XP
CD or DVD-ROM drive
100MB of available hard disk drive space for basic driver installation
425W PCI Express-compliant system power supply with a combined 12V current rating of 28A or more (Minimum system power requirement based on a standard PC configured with an Intel® Core™2 Extreme X6800 processor)
PCI Express-compliant motherboard with one vacant PCI Express x16 slot.
One 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector -or- Two 4-pin Molex supplementary power connectors
> 512 MB of system memory 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!

Sounds like a faulty video card to me.
If the machine or video card is still under warranty talk to the manufacturer as they should replace any faulty hardware.
If it's not under warranty I would suggest you swap the video card with another one if you have one or replace it entirely.
