Have upgraded graphics card from GeForce2 Ultra to FX5950,however I am getting "Low Power Supply" error message. System is Evesham 1500 with ASUS P4T Jumperfree AGP Pro/4X Motherboard.
Thanks for any Help
I also receive "To remedy problem, ensure card has supplemental power cord attached"?

sounds as if you might have to upgrade your PSU

First ensure that you have plugged your card into the PSU...if you don't have a spare lead there should be a splitter in the box with the card.Having said that as madboy said,you'll probably have to upgrade your PSU anyway.When i fitted my Radeon 9800 Pro which,like your card, needs to be connected to the PSU i phoned Evesham and they recommended at least a 350/400 watt PSU as these cards require a lot of power
