[HELP] Graphics Card Requires 2 x 6 PIN to 4 PIN Power Cable. What To Do?

Does my power supply provide the cables I need or will I need to buy a 2 6+4 pin power cables? My graphics card didn't come with all accessories so I don't have the 2 6+4 pin power cable

  1. Best answer
    Its an older power supply, but it does provide 2 6+2 pin PCI-e cables which you can plug into the PCI-e cable ports on your graphics card.
  2. your psu shows it comes with 2 6+2 pin connectors so it will worke per say with cards that need any 2 6pin or 8 pin hook ups
  3. The specifications say that your PSU has the necessary PCIe cables.
  4. Okay thanks guys for the answer. I was worried as this was my first build ever and I thought I messed some things up.
  5. From the info I'm looking at, that GPU needs 2 x 6 Pin PCI-E connections, and your PSU has 2 x 6+2 Pin PCI-E so you should be good to go.
  6. I just found that the card uses 2 6 pin so your covered but that psu is on the low end of things and may have a tough time under long term use ... you should look more towards a 650w
  7. One last question as I don't want to make another thread. Does this PSU with the cable to power my SATA HDD or do I need to buy a power connector for a HDD separately?
  8. should come with all you need for the build
  9. You psu comes with 6 SATA connections, so you should be fine.

    I'll look for another PSU during the week before Christmas. My parents set me on a budget so this was the only one I could get that I saw was actually rated good for the price.

    okay that's good then
  12. 500w would work but your out of any headroom with it
  13. Choosing the right PSU is an important decision for the enthusiast because it is the backbone of any system. Buying an inferior, no-frills unit brings with it many consequences – some of which can be catastrophic. I’ve personally read of many stories of various individuals who have been strapped for cash and gone down this route, these cheaper units can often blow and when they do, they will take everything with it. So you may think spending all of your money on the core components like CPU, GPU, motherboard and then very little on the PSU is a good thing – this may change when it goes up in smoke!

    this can be for a psu thats running at its limit also..
