What power supply do I need

Hello,
I have a Zotac Geforce GTX 260 and I do not think i have enough power supply inputs!

The graphics card needs 4 Power Supply Inputs but my power supply only has 4 in which three are being used by the rest of my PC


What Power Supply would I need to run my entire PC and the new graphics Card?

Thanks for all the Help
Andy

  1. What power supply do you have now?

    The recommended power supply would be 500W and have +12 Volt current rating of 36 Amps.
    Thats from an EVGA recommendation for that type of GTX 260 video card.

    An example of a PSU that meets those requirements is Antec EarthWatts EA-500D which has 37Amps of +12V.
  2. You need two 6 pin 75 watt PCIE connectors to power the GPU. I think you are talking about the adapter that turns two molex 4 pin connectors into 1 6 pin. I do not recommend doing this if you value your system go get a quality PSU.

    Antec EA500

    or

    CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W 69.99 after rebate

    I would go with the corsair unit.
