    that needs to go into one of the existing molex (the white things) connectors in your power supply. When you open your case, you will see a number of red/yellow and black wores gonig into similar type connectors, either the one on the graphics card has to go into an existing on in the case or the ones in the case have to plug into the card itself.

    Firstly, tell us the model of the card and also the colour of the slot you are putting it into just so we make sure you havent got a PCI-e card when your board will only take AGP.

    The two white plastic cartridges sound like male and female molexs as a kind of through connecter.

    I'm just worried that if you don't recognise a Molex you may damage the system by plugging the card in wrong...

    If the wires are coming from the fan then they probably plug into the card itself and have just been pulled out somehow. Some graphics cards also have a socket on them for you to plug in a power cable, so look out for that.

    Basically I think you mean the wire coming out of the box splits into 2 x 4 pin 12v molex connectors. This is for extra power for the ultra beasty card.

    On your power supply you will find female 12v 4-pin molex connectors. You only need to plug 1 into the 2 coming out of the gfx card (there are 2 because one is a male and one a female I believe).

    Hope that helps.

    Thatys not for the fan, it's for the whole card. The wires coming out of the card is the splitter, use it if you dont have nough free molex connectors comming out of the PSU itself. If you do have a spare line coming out of the PSU plug it directly into the 4 pin port on the upp right hand side of the card.

    really sorry but i dont no how to put pictures onto here.. sounds illy but when i click .. the pciture thing it comes up with a text or code needed from the file.. i only no how to browse for it or copy but when i copy the page changes to the picture instead of putting it into the text Yes thats right.. theres a 4 pin socket.. white plastic
    theres 2 of them.. 4 wires basicaly come put the card.. and theres a socket on the end with 4 pins.. then 4 more wires come out the socket with the pins which leads to another soket which doesnt have 4 pins but instead.. 4 holes which pins would basically fit into lol soz if im being stupid and dont understand this..

    RTFM?

    seriously though, it should look like this
    http://www.sapphiretech.com/awards/image/media_376.jpg
    In the top rh of that picture you have a 4-pin Molex connector.
    If you have a spare molex connector from your PSU you can plug that in directly. If not the cable that you have should allow you to chain into an existing connector.
    It is recommended to give the gfx card a cable all to itself or at least first feed off the cable.

    hold up dude.....HOLD UP

    First of all.........what card is in it right now?

    BECAUSE....you need to uninstall the drivers, for it...AND have the new ones ready on a disk or on your hard drive...to get the new one running.

    Drivers are "software" that make it work at all.

    You cannot./......repeat..CANNOT just take one out, and put one in and expect it to work,

    It just wont.

    Sorry

    ok./..Next questiion? If the card cost you £x pounds.....can you afford a bit more to get someone locally to do it for you.

    It MAY save you lots and lots of sad faces
