I changed your thread's title to something more descriptive than "Plz just help me". Since most people come here looking for computer help, a more specific title may make it easier for members with the needed knowledge to find your threads.

In addition to the information requested by Frank, does the original cheap card still work if you put it back into the computer?

The power supply is a 500w

The new card is the amd Radeon Rx 6600 xt

The old one came in a pre built but it is just like an inch and a half fan and the card it's self is like 4 by 2 someone told me that you could get the card online for like 50$ (sorry I don't know the name)

Thanks for changing the name and yes the old card still works
We still need the motherboard details.

Are you running Windows 11? The specifications for the AMD Radeon™ RX 6600 XT Graphics Card only list 64 Bit versions of Windows 11 as the supported OS.

https://www.amd.com/en/products/graphics/amd-radeon-rx-6600-xt
It says the system type is 64-bit operating system, x64-bases processor and in Windows specification the edition says Windows 10 pro

And my mother board is the mpg z390 gaming

Some of my friends told me I need a better power supply
If that happens again kindly use the "contact us" link at the bottom of every page for assistance.

I will merge the old account into the new one and then rename it Rebelbrighton. That way you will keep the say login credentials as the new account you created.
Thanks

That may be a problem. The launch date for that graphics card is 8/11/2021 and the specs say it supports 64 Bit Windows 11. There is no mention of Windows 10 support. Maybe someone else here that is much more familiar with AMD GPUs can suggest a Windows 10 driver package that may work with the card.

Make sure any power socket(s) on the new graphics card are connected to the new power supply.
Do the same for the motherboard.

You should see something on the screen when you switch the PC on.
