    Hi i just got my evga geforce GTX 470 card to day. but when i try to install the graphics drivers my computer will boot up in windows for 2 sec then i get a BSOD or it says my grapichs drivers have stopped responding :( then restarts .

    I am kind of suspecting that its my power PSU which is the problem it is an its a Xilence XP 550W only has 1x PCI-E 6 pin so I had to use the 2 molex adapter that came with the card.

    my system specs are:
    Mainboard : Asus P5K SE
    Chipset : Intel P31/P35
    Processor : Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2400MHz
    Physical Memory : 4096MB (4 x 1024 DDR2-SDRAM )
    Hard Disk : Seagate ST31000528AS ATA Device (1000GB)
    PSU: Xilence model no. XP550 Voltages/currents: 3.3V/30A, 5V/32A, +12V1/18A 12V2/20A, -12V/0.5A, +5Vsb/2.5A

    Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

    Hi, Ophel.

    I wonder if you resolved the problem with your video card, since I have the same problem as you. I tried everything, I'm desperate and do not know what else to do.

    If you could help me with this, I would be grateful.

    Thank you very much.

    Thank you very much for answering. I think I'll do the same. But, you return the card and they gave you the same model, or you bought another different card
