Hi there, I should not that im not much of a cpu hardware person and trying to work out what PSU i need is driving me crazy.
I inherited an unused computer from my father, which had no GPU, just quad core phenom 2 (unsure of mhz) 2gig ram, one 500g HD and dvd writer, and 2 large case fans (to give rough idea of what i need to power)
So i decided to invest in a 24 inch screen and the HD 6950 2gig GPU.
Unfortunately when I checked the psu in the comp its just a generic 450watt, and ati recommend I have at least 550.
The problem I am having is this: (from installation guide)
The following power supply and connector configurations:
• A 500 watt or better power supply with two 75 watt 6-pin PCIe power
connectors for the AMD Radeon™ HD 6950.
• A 550 watt or better power suplly with one 75 watt 6-pin PCIe connector
and one 150 watt 8-pin PCIe connector for the AMD Radeon HD 6970.
Its these 2 pcie connectors that I cant work out. I was hoping someone could recommend a few budget psus that would work with this card. I'm completely out of my depth on this, I need them to be below £50-60 if possible, reliable (as far as cheap gpus go) and enough power to not worry about pushing card to limits
I will not be overclocking or anything like that.
