  1. I've been using a Geforce 6200 oc PCI for my video card. However, my uncle recently gave me a Geforce 6600gt agp video card. I tried to install it and then realized that it has some sort of power cable that you need to plug in for it to work. I cannot find any plug in that wil fit the power cable. I'm using a Dell Dimension 8250 with an Intel 850e motherboard. Any help is appreciated.

    I believe that card needs an ordinary 4 pin molex power connector.

    The thing is, I believe there is a connector that will fit the cable, but the cable is much to short to reach it.

    you have to buy a 4 pin molex connector to pull down from your 12+ rail.

    In other words you can get an extension cable.
