Currently have gtx 650 which only requires a 6 pin, but the 280x needs a 6 pin and a 8 pin. Thanks in advance

    Replace the PSU! If you can spend $300+ on a GPU you can get for around $50 a better 550watt PSU than the current overrated 850watt unit which might blow up your card because of the lack of quality!
  2. Is it possible for you to purchase an adapter cable? If not, it looks like you'll be needing a new PSU. Merry Xmas.
  3. Thanks for the replies, I just decided to buy a new Power supply.
