3) screwed in place
4) Closed case
Now after booting and installing drives it runs good and plays all games, but i get a message saying it has insufficient power and will lower spec to not damage my system. Now i know my psu is too weak and im going to upgrade this, the only question i have is:
What connection do you plug into the card, to give it additional power. I see a place to plug something in on the side of my card which looks like a 3by2 crosshatch connection and i see nothing coming from my psu that will fit this type of connection. My manual says its the same connection that gives power to your hard drive and optical drives but ive tried and this connection is 1 prong too long and 1 set of prongs to short.
Heres a little diagram, the connection on my card is like
- - -
- - -
but the one it says i should be using is like
- - - - (this is the one in that gives power to my hdd)
Im baffled as i need to give it additional power in the meantime before i upgrade my psu but cant see a suitable connection to affix.
