That's the PSU, one thing is, it already used up both 6-pin and 6+2 pin to power my GTX 260 core 216... Is there some sort of converter or adapter to make another different power connection on my PSU feed a second vid card? or do i have to get a new PSU entirely? i know its 550 watts, but with some wattage calc i used, it says i'm only using 361 watts with my current set up. I figured i can throw in another card, maybe... (it's a future thing, when i retire that card, i can use it for physics and the new future card for graphics, as my AMD 790GX mobo doesn't do SLI, but it has two x16 PCI slots) More about : power gpu psu 13thmonkey a b ) Power supply April 18, 2009 11:27:36 AM http://www.google.co.uk/search?source=ig&hl=en&rlz=&q=m...
