The 7900GS has a 6-pin PCI-E connector. You plug in the PCI-E connector form your PSU into it.

6 pin connector onto the video card? you sure?
P.S. Found a 4 pin connector onto the video card, connected a cable that has 6 pins connectors and after that I connected it to a cable from the power supply (PCI-E1)
Still nothing
Was that good what I've done?

Is it a standard molex plug then? (Same as an IDE hard drive).

If there's a plug on the graphics card it needs something to fill it..... :)

I think I know what your problem is.

You bought a 7900GS AGP. Your mobo is PCI-E. That would explain EVERYTHING.

WTF..............a 7900GS without a PCI-E plug???? I have never seen that.

Is that EXACTLY what your card looks like? Down to the PCI-E pins going into your mobo?
