XFX 9800GT SLI power help Tags: Nvidia SLI Power Graphics Last response: April 3, 2010 1:11 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Anonymous April 3, 2010 12:24:58 AM Hi all, Question about powering my sli XFX 9800GT Cards. I recently bought an extra card so that i could do SLI I also bought the XFX 750i motherboard and a 450 Visiontek Juice Box that goes in the 5.25 slot. I hooked the juicebox into an power outlet into a 4 pin power supply connector and connected the 8 pin connector to the slot above the CPU and heatsink.....not sure if thats right or not..... So now i have to connect my new card to the second pci-e slot. This particular card is the SAME as my old card as it is also an XFX 9800gt but this card has a 6 pin connector- My question is 1.) is my reasoning about the juicebox correct. and also 2.) what do i do with the 6 pin connector on my second 9800gt?????? Thanks so much guys, i need help More about : xfx 9800gt sli power rolli59 a c 146 Î Nvidia April 3, 2010 12:35:39 AM First of all the 9800GT is not a power hungry card. They will run in SLI on a good quality 500watt PSU. Both cards need power to run. What is the brand and model of your PSU?

So I have 2 xfx 9800gt cards in sli, couldnt be happier! now i just have to find the drivers on their site.. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
