How did you manage to mistake a 9800GX2 with a 8800GT? It's a decent card....

Rapid. Do you have any Molex to 6-pin adaptors? If so, you can modify one of those into an adaptor....the only issue is that you will need to make sure your 6-pin PCI-E connector fits into the 8-pin slot on the card.

So you somehow "acquired" a $500 card from "sources", don't know what it is, and now won't fork out $6 for a proper connector.

I expect someone ranting in the off topic forum about losing his new GX2 to a burglary.
