My specific problem is while it says it needs a 6 pin PCI express power connector, it does not say whether or not it comes with one. Some reviews have stated that it does, but it is not in the picture of cables. Does anyone know if it does indeed come with one or do i need to pick one up myself?
Also i was wondering if my Antec 480 watt power supply would even be able to handle the card at all.
You can pick up an MSI X1900XTX for around $284 after MIR. Newegg, and zipzoomfly is currently out-of-stock but you have until the end of the month to buy one. There are a bunch of qualifying stores so you can check to see if one of the other stores have one available. Otherwise, if you can wait and see what happens, this is a better deal. MSI X1900XTX
Ok so i checked before and could not find the dedicated PCI express power cable...but then i just checked again and found it hideing behind my mother board.
Now for all the cards im looking at, they recomend 30 amps on a 12 volt rail. When i look at my power supply i see that it has listed as output + 12 V1 and + 12 V2. these are both rated as max output at 18A. Then it says below that 12V1 and 12V2 have a max load of 33A.
If i understand it right the power supply should be able to handle the new card. Anyone know otherwise?
