Make HD 2600 AGP video card work on my OLD computer

I bought the HD 2600 AGP card last week.
I tried many time to install it on my old computer. All failed. I can not even make the PC boot.
Later, I found one six pin socket on the end of video card. I don’t know what it is and I can not find any explaination on the user menaul.
I google it and knows that the 6 pin socket is a power socket to give more power to Video card.
The problem is my PSU is old style without 6 pin plug.

Diamond Viper ATI Radeon™ HD 2600 AGP 256MB GDDR2 Video Card

I have an desktop about two years old with ATI 9200 video card which is almost 4 years old. I replaced the fan of this video card in 2005.
Now I would like to buy a new video card with High-definition(HD) play capacity.
Because the computer is equipped by AGP slot, the products are limited. Most of the main stream graphic cards are PCIe.
I found one with the price I fell OK. I went to Bestbuy closer to my office in the lunch time.
