  1. I bought a AGP card for one of my older computers and wanted to know how to fully install it.

    It comes with Powercables but I dont know where to put those ( Been using PCI-E for alonnngggg time :D )

    Can someone tell me how to do it?

    Here is the link to the card:

    The video-card needs one of those power cables that's usually used for a floppy-drive.
    If your PSU doesn't have one of those, you can use the splitter cable that's supplied with the video-card.
    If it does have one, then you don't need the splitter.

    I know that but what exactly do I do to install it? Like where do I plug in the power cables and stuff

    There's only one, and you might not even need it.

    Plug it (1) into the base, back of the card where there is an open connection with the correct wire. Then connect that wire to your power supply connection as needed.

    Good Luck :D

    BTW, if you need additional help, just reach me by pm or on xfire.
