does power supply met vid card requirements
I've got a question regarding a power supply I bought today. I need to know if it meets the requirements of the vid card I'm looking at buying.
This is the PSU I bought today:
Micro Center - LS 550 Watt ATX EPS/12V Power Supply (not that price)
and this is the vid card I'm looking at:
Newegg.ca - EVGA 896-P3-1258-A1 GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 SSC Edition 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
my biggest concern is the card says it needs: Two 6-pin PCI Express power connectors or four available hard disk power connectors
Does that power supply cover that? I'm not real sure what they mean by (1) PCI Express 6+2-pin Power Connector
The PSU is going into a Dual Core system with a Sata drive.
Figured I better find out now because they said I can return the PSU if it's not the right one.
It means the power supply doesn't have the proper connections and you will need to use an adapter.
My advice is that if you need to use adapters buy a new power supply.
So it doesn't have the power connectors needed for this card?
Should be alright.
6+2 means it's a 6pin PCIe power plug with an additional 2pins that can clip on to give you an 8pin PCIe power plug.
