I just got this card for Xmas and went to install it in my PC. Horror of horrors it doesn't fit. Before I cut out bits of case structure however I need to know if this is a simple plug it into the slot and away I go. I have read a lot about power issues, but I don't understand really if I am supposed to connect some cables to the card or not?
Any advice appreciated.
yes you drop it into the SLI slot and then connect the SLI power connectors to the card.
this is a picture of my card and you can see the two power wires connected to the card.about 650w PSU will do the job no problem I think you could even get away with a 550w one

Do you have PCI-e slots on your motherboard?
yep I have enough 'space' I already had a geforce 6600 in there and I am taking it out. But I think at this point the best thing is get a new box.... I am probably going to have to replace the power supply anyway.
Thanks for the help will let you know how I get on! :
