  1. Hey guys I just bought a new Geforce 7900 GS and I noticed that I have to have a direct link from my power supply to the card and I cant seem to find the wire that connects from the PSU to the video card. I do have an adapter that came with the card but I am not sure how you use it. I have a Dell Dimension E510 and i also have some pictures of the inside of my case. The card that is in there is my old card I can replace it perfectly with no problem but i cant seem to find the cable from the PSU.

    I assume that the adapter was made to fit two of the connectors in the pic above. So get two free ones, and plug it into them, then plug the other end into the card.

    Regards :)

    Your Problem is that your PSU Has no extra connectors (like most Dells) But the stock PSU doesn't have enough power to run a Geforce 7900 anyway. Luckally your system has a non-propriatary PSU which can be replaced with any standard ATX PSU with a 24 Pin main connector.
    I recomend This:
    It is from an exelent brand (FSP) and has plenty of power to run a Geforce 7900 wiith plenty of headroom for future upgrades.
