Graphics card help issue ?.. with PCI-E
System Specs are :
ASROCK G31-M 2.0
4GB MEMORY DDR2
Was given this computer from a friend for my son and along with it was a GTX 260 XFX card
But this card has 2 slots for PCI-E and a small 2 pin plug next to it
Now the PSU thats in the Computer has one plug for PCI-E will it work with just the one or will i need to get another PSU ?
The card will not run without 2 PCI-E 6-pin connectors plugged in. There are adapters available to convert 2 molex 4-pin connectors to 1 6-pin connector like this: nGear 4 Pin Male Molex Power to 6 Pin PCI-E Power Adapter Cable
Did I miss something?
Make and model of PSU please. Hard to believe a 750w would only have 1 connector and if it does I wouldn't even use the adapter you can use to bridge molex to pci-e!
Those adapters are asking for trouble as is.
Somebody made a new thread instead of a reply, heh.
Duplicate threads merged.
Yeah sorry thought it was my fault as I tried to show a picture of the system
As mod stated to me because I have less than 5 posts not able too :blarg:
Anyway ...yeah the PSU has only 1 PCI-E on it and dont fancy adding a converter from molex as I heard there not that great..
So Bought another 750W with 2 PCI-E ...well thats what supplier is stating it says this :
Artic Blue 750W Power Supply Unit PSU
12 Months Warranty
If your looking into buying a new PSU give us a budget and where you live?
I have never heard of "Artic Blue" and personally you don't want to mess around with crap.
He's right... never mess around with cheap PSU's. They could cost you the entire computer when they blow up. I've seen this so many times from Antec psu's it makes me wanna spew.
Could you give us a link to the actual product page?
