So apparently, my current PSU crapped out and wont power my GPU (7900GS)
Awkwardly enough the PSU (550W Optimax) still powers the rest of my cpu.
I want to check to see if it's the GPU that's messed up or if i have to replace my PSU.
I have a buddy who said he'd lend me his hx520w to test my GPU. Is it possible if i just connect the 6 pin from the hx520w to the 7900 and plug the 7900 into my pci-e port on my MB? or do i have to replace the whole psu in my system to test it?
Basically, i want my current psu to stay in the case and power MB, sata drives, optical etc. I just want to open my side panel, plug the hx520w pci-e 6pin into the 7900, and plug the 7900 into the mb. Will it work? Won't be a long test, jus a quick one to see if my 7900GS will crash with a different PSU.
