im looking to buy a radeon 5770 and ill need a new power supply i know already. i currently have one of my dads that he replaced when upgrading(it was pretty new) it has 450 watt max, 12v1 at 15a and 12v2 at 17 amp for a total of 28a. it is a psu by velocity micro
in the end my question is whether the power supply will run it, tell me if you need other info.
must be for a good reason. molex to 6 PIN adapters are just cable and connectors and who gives warranty about that? I myself considered using it but once I have it I never got the nerve to plug it into the HD4770 that I bought for my kids. Ended up buying good PSUs afterall...
What kind of dumb statement is that? Of course a molex to 6 pin adapter is going to work. I said basically if you don't have a 6 pin power plug - it will not work. If you obviously have a molex to 6 pin power plug it's going to work. Duhhh.
But yea - random kid has a point - if you don't have one on your PSU - it may mean your PSU is not new enough and or it can't provide enough "juice"
It could have plenty of juice but its older the problem with those adapters is your taking 2 12 volt leads and turning it into 3 leads on the one that is doubled up could prove to be to much for the wiring and that is not good so be careful if you use them
