Does the orange piece go inbetween the black hook or on top? I installed the card with orange piece resting on top of the black hook.

The black piece is a kind of locking latch. Look at this page on hp: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/generic...=reg_R1002_USEN

If you gently pushed down on the vid card you should feel a slight click when the card is seated properly.

Did you upgrade the power supply? hp's normally don't have one big enough for your video card.

When I pushed the video card into the pci-e slot, I did hear a click that felt like I made the card secure. After doing this I was thinking that the orange thing was supposed to be in between the locking latch hook. It also fit into the outer slots, where the monitor plug and tv-out connections are, just as well the sound card that was pre-installed.

I did buy an enermax 430W psu but am too eager to install it and see if everything works.

Sounds like the card is in correctly.

What do you guys think of these stats for my current pre-installed PSU(atx-300-12Z by Bestec)? With the 7600gs graphics card installed.

Based on the table below, I think my current psu can handle this video card. I may not even need the new antec psu.

The reason that I asked about the power supply is that every Nvidia I have seen calls for 400 watts or better in the power supply. Look on the box or in the manual to find out what the manufacturer thinks you need.

I had to upgrade to a 600watt PSU for my ASUS 7300GS but I also run 2 Hard Drives and 2 Optical (CD and DVD) Drives. I suggest using a PSU calcutalor like this one to figure out exactly what kind of Wattage your gonna need and then buy a PSU that is rated higher (average PSU load should be about 75% of rated capacity). http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp
