Solved

I need help on installing my graphics card to my setup.

Hey, guys this is my first time installing a graphics card to any type of computer
Im buying this card from amazon (http://amzn.to/2f1YGL9) (FTW GTX 1050ti EVGA)
Current GPU: NVIDIA Geforce GT 730
Current Motherboard: MSI 760GMA-P34(FX) (MS-7641)
Current Power Supply: ALLIED ATX 350W SL-8360BTX
Current Processor: AMD FX-6300 Vishera

So here is the questions!
Is their already a 6-pin connector on the 730?
Can I make my PSU make it have a 6-pin connector?
How do I install it the 6-pin connector?
Do I need any other cables?
Any other info I need to know about?

Thank you guys, in advance.

Cheers.

    First you need a better psu. The psu you currently have is a low quality fire hazard and should be replaced asap. Here are a couple good budget psus.

    Either of those will have the required 6-pin pci-e power connector for your new card.

    Can you link me to some 6 pin cables that is compatible for the ones you linked?

  3. Those 2 psus in my last post come with a 6-pin pci-e power cable for the gpu. No need to buy any thing other than the psu.

  4. Something to consider before you buy, the FTW edition is their most expensive. Unless you really want that model, I'd suggest a slightly less expensive model that does not require the 6 pin connector. Then it becomes a simple matter of swapping in your new card for the old card.

    That power supply is very cheap and should be replaced, but you've lived with it this long so...

    That's something I'm going to take in consideration but, I'm going to swap out the psu thanks man.
