Gtx 460 PSU PCI-e Connector Problem


I currently own a Cooler Master eXtreme power plus 500W PSU

Now it comes with only one 6 pin connector and the GPU I want to get needs TWO 6 pin connectors.

I read some places that I could use a Molex convertor to 6 pin, this is no problem, but I just wanted to make sure that this will be safe right, converting one to a 6 pin, and using another 6 pin directly from the PUS? My computer wont

rest of comp:
AMD phenom x4 3.4ghz
4gb ddr2
2 hdd 7,200
Hoping for gtx 460

Thanks very much

  1. Just use the molex adapter that comes with the card.
  2. Okay I understand, thank you.

    I was reading other places and does it matter which port I plug the actual 6 pin and which I plug the conversion one into? since there are two on the GPU.

    Just plug it in and use it along with the one 6pin cable from your psu. Must be both plugs or it won't work.
