Go to Motherboard Layout.

#22, PCI Express x16 Slot (PCIE2) This is where you would install your new video card.
Your video card will have 1 or 2 sockets at one end, (depends on the power required by the card) This is where you plug in a cable DIRECTLY from the Power Supply.

There is no power cable from the video card to the Motherboard.

#4, ATX Power Connector (ATXPWR1) 24 pin main power connector.


#24, ATX 12V Power Connector (ATX12V1) 4 pin power connector from the power supply. (not used for video)

The adaptor cable would not be needed with a new PSU.

The card is powered by the PCI-e slot so there is no need for any external power:


I found this on a review site for the card HERE

If your OS is not 64 bit version it isn't going to utilize all 4 gigs.
