I asked a question last week regarding the swapping over of a 9800GX2 to that over a 5870 Radeon regarding the power requirements, and you informed me there would be no problem regarding the PSU and connnections etc.
I have ordered the Sapphire 5870 Eyefinity 6 with 2gb RAM and wanted to know if it will still be a simple swap over regarding the power supply, as I am a NOOB and have no idea if my PSU will have the necessary 8 pin connections?! This worries me a bit, and also my monitor does not have a DVI port, only a DSUB connection, again will I get a suitable connection in the box or will I have to buy an additional cable to supply an image to my PC?!
Thanks in advance for any help you can give, this card is currently on its way to me as I send you this and I just don't want to be left with a card I cant use, or more to the point, with a card I have to spend more on to be able to use!!!!!
ANY info or advice you can give would be very much appreciated!!!!
Thanks, I have looked at what comes in the box in pictures on various websites, and I do already have a DVI adapter plugged into the back of my 9800GX2 which then goes from there into my DSUB cable into my monitor, so I assume I take one of the new connectors and just fit it the same way?!
