was wondering since I have a graphiocs card requiring 2x 8prong plugs so im using one 8prong plug asnd one 6prong adapter. the adapte. if I don't need the adapter id much prefer to get the 18bucks back it cost however I do want wich is best.

my question is wich is better 2x molex to 8pin adapter or a 6pin adapter to an 8pin plug

Two molex to 8pin is better than 6pin to 8pin, 6pin can deliver up to 75W while 8pin delivers up to 150W

Two molex isn't necessarily better, unless you know whether the molex are on the +12v rail. The 6-pin to 8-pin will be fine, your power supply has plenty of amps to cover it.

Ahmadjon, I'm sad to see for the first time you don't have a ! at the end of your sentence :(

Probably a good question, I just went off his signature of the Cooler Master Silent Pro PSU and 7850.

In signature is Real Power Pro and not Silent Pro.

same powersupply 650watt however the graphiocs card is a radeon 280x. and actualy I answered my own question becauyse if I rember right it has 3x 12v rails so id guess maybe one for the cpu, one for the graphics and one 12v rail on molex for everything else. that's just a guess but I know thewre is 3x twelve volt rails

In part that's why I asked, 7850 = 1 6 Pin ;)

Then two molex to 8pin will be your best bet!
