Precision 530 and 6800 ultra AGP...

  • Hello, I recently bought a nvidia 6800 ultra AGP.
    Now I would like to get an advice on wich molex connector is the best to assure to the card an optimal power. I though to connect the HardDisk1 molex and the Bay3 molex. The two molex are on two power lines (2 different cables). 
    What do you think?
    thank you in advance

  • I forgot to say I have to use a Y-splitter for HardDisk1 molex because I cannot reach the card connect without it.



  • As far as I know, the 6800 AGP card does not work correctly on Precision 530. You will get a Hardware Voltage Falure error message at the BIOS startup.
