HD 5850 connection corsair PSU Tags: Graphics Cards HD Power Corsair PCI Express Graphics Product Last response: June 12, 2010 11:19 PM in Graphics & Displays Share chiknbane June 12, 2010 10:27:37 PM Hey the HD 5850 requires 2 6 pin PCI-e connectors ("500 Watt or greater power supply with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended"). Will a 550W corsair VX work? it says "1 x 6 pin PCI Express power ¦ 1 x 8 pin PCI Express power with detachable 2 pin section" is that ok or will i need the 650W TX which has 2 PCI-e 6 pin connectors? links: 550W - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/132563 650W - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/135514 This is the card im looking at http://www.ebuyer.com/product/199655 (theres also an ASUS and XFX models) Is it the model with 4500MHz memory clock and 765MHz core clock or 4000 and 725? Will i even notice a difference between the two models with the different speeds? thanks More about : 5850 connection corsair psu Bluescreendeath a b U Graphics card June 12, 2010 10:32:51 PM The 550w will work just fine. A 1x8 pin is a 6 pin + 2 more pins and can work as either a 6 pin or a 8 pin connector. But the price difference between the two models isn't that great... Bushmaster78FS June 12, 2010 10:36:26 PM Hey man I got a HX650W, which I am thinking is not too much different from the non-modular model and it has 6+2 pin connectors, plenty of them. If you are going to go 650, go HX650W since it will work...

Also do all cards come with some adapters like HDMI-DVI etc or does it depend on the brand?
