I have a Dell dimension 8100 P4/1.5, 512mb ram and I just installed a new EVGA Nvidia GeForce 6600 128mb. The problem is that it comes with 4 pin "Y" power cable. I plugged the male end into the card itself and found a male to stick one of the females into but it gives me a message that it is adjusting settings to run on lower power. I have no idea where the other female plug goes and don't even know if I plugged the other female in the right place.

The kicker is I replaced the card to begin with because I am trying to play games and I lag everywhere and my buddy told me it was because my video card was outdated. I just tried playing Call of Duty and it still lags. I don't know what to do. Can you help a newbie out???

Thanks a lot!

its not just the Graphics card that makes games run faster, its if you have a lot of backround services running, and also your Processor, if you could get you hands on a P42.4-3Ghz+ processor then it would probs run alot faster.
