I have a 9800gtx+ that only came with 1 6-pin power adapter yet the card requires 2. Do i need to buy another power adapter? I have a 6-pin plug coming from the PSU itself, if I plug that in, will that be OK?

I have a CoolerMaster eXtreme Power 550W PSU.

Yeah, 1 6pin socket use the PSU 6 pin PCIE connector, another will use the adapter that require 2 molex.

It should work just fine

450W minimum requirement is the entire system tested with a Core 2Duo CPU, not for the graphic card only

I run my 9800GTX+ on a 450W, it work just fine
