hello my name is: patrikas2.
i have a really crappy(at least compared with today's computers) computer that can run half life 2 on lowest settings with almost no lag. my comp is refurbished and my graphics card stopped working and i need to buy a new one. only problem is, all i have is 3PCI slots and 1AGP slot, and my compaq power supply can only handle 240W. yesterday i bought a case, power supply, and graphics card, i plug it all in, and the thing does not work. here are the parts i bought:
Thermaltake V3 Black SECC- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133094
COOLMAX V-600 Power Supply- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-079-_-Product
XFX Radeon HD 4650 1GB 128-bit DDR2 AGP 8X- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-433-_-Product
i already have two SATA drives, a CD drive, RAM, etc. i am really inexperienced as i took apart my comp for the first time a week ago and would like some suggestions. what parts should i buy if i were to make a new comp?
