500w PSU has only 2 PCI-E 6 pin, but I need 1 PCI-E 8 pin for XFX DD HD 7950. Help?

So I have a Antec EA500 500W PSU and it doesn't have the PCI-E 8 pin connector I need for the HD 7950. Would I even be able to power the 7950 if I got a 6 pin to 8 pin converter cable or do i need a better PSU?

  1. You should just have enough power. Might want to upgrade the PSU soon however as thats an older PSU and they don't last forever.

    Get the molux to PCI-E cable and problem solved.

  3. IMHO get a new PSU like the 550W XFX PSU or something likethat.
    The EA series aren't meant for gaming and I am not sure how long it will hold it in.
    Also molex to PCI-e adapters could damage GPU so be careful with that if your using it.
