More about : questions Lmeow a b U Graphics card August 11, 2010 6:37:57 AM What power supply do you have? You could use a dual four pin molex to six pin PCI-E connector, provided your PSU provides enough amperage on the 12 V rail. To answer your question though, the best card would be the GT 240, although a GT 220 and G 210 won't need any power connectors either. brendz155 August 11, 2010 6:55:30 AM I have a 580W , but it has no 6 pin connectors Related resources A few questions about my build?

Lmeow a b U Graphics card August 11, 2010 7:11:48 AM Well, you could use a dual molex (four pin) to six pin PCI-E cable. The GT 240 would work alright with an Athlon II X3 or Phenom II X3, probably medium settings on newer games and high settings on older titles. What is your brand specifically? Because a 580 W PSU without a single PCI-E six pin adapter is kinda dodgy, unless it's old enough. brendz155 August 11, 2010 10:02:06 AM The brand is G7 POWER EXTERME , I bought it for £35 at maplins. brendz155 August 11, 2010 10:02:57 AM Ive got a G7 power extreme 580w PSU, I bought it for £35 at maplins spcial ofer becasue my OLD PSU blew brendz155 August 11, 2010 10:04:46 AM similar to this http://info.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=345571 ekg84 August 11, 2010 10:16:12 AM Just use adapter similar to this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
