i7 build-need psu connect to video card?
 
Sorry for the stupid question. I have a single 4670 video card in my new i7 build and don't think it needs power from the psu, but want to make sure.

I see two connectors on the side of this HD 4670 512mb video card

What are they for, crossfire? I'm not using that.

I just want to make sure I don't have to connect any power from my psu for this card. The instructions are vague. Thanks.

You do have to connect a power supply to the card otherwise it won't work......your psu should have 2 6pin connectors that you have to plug into the card, if it doesn't than you will need a new psu.

yes the 2 connector on the pics are for crossfire. I don't see power connector on that card.... I look on His website , no info, you don't have the manual ?

I don't think the HD4670 need a 6pin connectors, just plug the card in the PCI-E slot

Ya the 4670's don't require any power besides the motherboard power. kruzn4evr must have misread and thought you it 4870.

Oooops....my bad...sorry about that....ummm...never mind...lol

Cappaj1 where do you purchasse that card, I like the exhaust fan on it, and the fact than it's low power consumation, I have a use for a card like that

That is the cheapest place for Canadian retailers.

your gonna use that for a core i7 build??? thats a joke... get something like a 4770, or a 9800gt minimum... unless your not gaming.

We all have budgets and needs.
Saying something is a Joke is not constructive to a helpful Build.
The 4670 Is an Apt Mid-Level Card to play the less intensive games on Max settings.
How do I know? My 2600 Did everything and more for what I played.

I think if thats what you can afford/want, it will work nicely.
