    I just got my Nvidia Geforce 9600 GSO pcie video card in the mail today and hooked it up to my pci express slot in my Dell Inspiron 531 computer and when i powered on my computer ,all I got was a real loud screeching sound so I turned the computer off, On my video card it has a power connector slot but I cant find where to plug it in at and i think maybe with my computer model what i am needing to plug it in is not included due to them saving money and not including old connectors..

    It's not an old connector. It's the new(ish) PCI-E 6-pin power connector, standard to any quality power supply today. And anyways, your card wouldn't propably run with the Dell's crappy low-power crap-quality power supply even if it had a PCI-E 6-pin connector.

    I have posted two good power supplies in the other thread..
