Default Re: Help with installing EVGA GeForce GTX 460

Gateway rates their power supplies differently than the third party manufacturers (at least they used to) so there's a good chance that it will work anyway. You'll need to use the the power connector cables that are in the card's box; hook one end to some open connections coming from the power supply and the other end to the connector on the card.

That card that's in your way is in a PCI-Express x1 slot; it's a PCI Express slot that runs at a lower speed than the slots that are primarily for graphics cards. It appears that the card might be a sound card. Remove it and post a pic.
