The PNY Geforce 8400 GS (model VCG84512SPEB)
card I have is only a 4 pin connection (S-Video). If you click on the link and check out the photos, you can see it is a 4 pin connection). It was the only card that was available for my computers PSU (300watt). I may consider on upgrading the PSU to accomodate a EVGA GeForce 8400 GS (Model 512-P1-N724-LR)
, which a 350watt PSU is recommended, but that may not be for awhile. The EVGA 8400 GS has a 9 pin.
I have read that S-Video was of the lower qualities for video, but I wasn't aware it wasn't compatible with HD. I was looking into the the DVI to HDTV (Component) adapter (Sapphire DVI to HDTV
). Hopefully the local TigerDirect has something similar in stock, since I don't really want to wait for delivery.
