I have to disagree. The OCZ 600W has the guts to power that GFX card. I own the same one on my old rig, A64 3400+, 1 Gig and 7800GS AGP OC (re-OCed) and a TT TR2 470W.

Did you plug in the molex adapter in the card? Did you try with a different molex? What graphics card did you have before?

He claimed it was for his second computer.... I'm guessing that it doesn't have an OCZ 600W installed in it...... :)

Other than that.... if it's not power supply, I'd guess resource conflict and if a bios reset didn't do the trick, booting with a PCI (not PCIe) vid card might reset the vid card slot to get it up and running,
