i recently bought a xfx 4350 gpu: http://www.xfxforce.com/en-us/products/graphiccards/hd%204000series/4350.aspx#2

my computer is here:
http://www.dell.com/us/en/dfh/desktops/dimen_e521/pd.aspx?refid=dimen_e521&cs=22&s=dfh

i was using integrated video before i installed this card.
when i installed my gpu my computer booted up kinda loud and then slowly bogged down.. which hasnt happened before. along with that i get no output to my monitor.

it requires a 300w power supply and i have a 305w


other specs:

amd athlon 64 processor 3500+ 2.2ghz
960mb of ram(it said i needed 1g of system memory on the box)
NForce 430 chipset with the AM2 socket

any suggestions as to what to do about this?
do i need more ram, new power supply? should i install the driver first then put the card in?

Hmm , just what I thought.

The machine uses an integrated nvidia 6150. Your not suppose to mix ati and nvidia gpu's on the same machine for just this reason. The drivers and even hardware conflict with each other.
