Insufficient Power for Graphics Card

  1. Hello,

    I have installed a NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GS AGP Graphics Card. A problem has been identified that the card is not receiving sufficient power and that the graphics processor has lowered it's performance to a level that allows safe operation.

    i also just bought a new power supply of max wattage of 430W. The additional power supply required for the graphics card is a six-pin plug which i have already plugged in as well, but the problem still exists.

    Can anyone help?

    My comp is a P4 3.0GHz
    running on 1GB Ram (2 slots of 512)
    the rest of the things are quite standard.
    i can play oblivion, but when i play Warcraft 3 it's very jumpy. which is rather ridiculous. don't know if it's connected to the graphics card problem though.
