Ok here is my story. I was a dumbass, and chickened out of building a new PC when I saw a refurbished hp at a killer price. Anyways, I decided I wanted to upgrade the RAM, GPU and CPU. So I ordered a nzxt 750 watt PSU, a MSI GTX 660 along with 8 gig RAM.
I got my RAM and PSU today. Turns out that my MOBO is retarded and has some non-standard power hookup with 6 pins inline instead of the 20 pin hookup.
I guess I need a new Mobo now to be able to run it. I have a feeling the crappy 320 watt isn't even powering my gt 610 enough let alone be able to handle powering the gtx 660. I have no idea how to go about picking one that will work with the processor I have. It's i5 2500. I don't have a lot of money to spend either. I have CPU-Z, but have no idea how to apply it and check it against specs to make sure it is going to fit in my case, and fit with my processor :(
