new video card psu cable question.

hi guys.

im getting my r9 280x on 8 nov and i just found out that it requires a 6pin+8pin psu cables.

now i have 2x6pin cables so i asked one of my friends and he told me to use a 6pin to 8pin converter its like 6pin female to 6pin+2pin male.

will this work well?

or should i buy a new psu (which i cant afford now :( ).

thanks in advance :)

    What PSU do you have?

    There's nothing wrong with using a Molex, but it might be worth an upgrade for a card like that
  2. its a thermaltek 750w which is good enough for a single card im buying a new one next month.

    so you think its okay using a 6pin to 8pin converter?

    thanks for replying.

    Yes that'll be fine, not the best PSU brand but will be enough.

    Go ahead and buy a molex
