The three pin is used for fans, is that what you need it for? in that case it would probably be a 3-pin to 4-pin adapter that you need.

I don't quite get what you're talking about. Does the graphics card require external power? Because if it does, I've never heard of a 3 pin power connector on a graphics card.

Oh, that's what you meant. Yeah, those are cheap and at every major retailer. However, make sure your PSU is high enough wattage/amperage to support your graphics card. (You really should have done that before buying it ;) )

I would tell you to go buy a new PSU, i mean, youll need at least 450W for it to run, so a 500-600W PSU should be enough for you and those dont cost that much, unless youre after the hardcore versions ^^

How come you bought an ATI card instead of Nvidia?

well ive always liked nvidia better, but i bought this for bitcoin mining, and ati gets better hash rates for that, so i went for ati, and as for buying a new powersupply, i think im just gonna wait until i can buy a whole new computer.
