Now i need to know whats the best adapter for the 8-pin power connection on the 4850x2 The PSU has a 8-pin but it doesnt fit the card. From what i see the 8-pin with the PSU is 8-pin EPS12V Motherboard. plz help i need to know what adapter is best for the card like a Molex-8pin or 4pin to 8pin what? ty
well i've read that the 4850x2 even on max load doesn't exceed like 345 watts.. even with A PSU calculator with my Phenomx4 cpu and the card it says 345w.. but if i do decide to run it alone(on a separte PSU) how will i know if im having stability isssues?
and to refer back to the original question. the Molex-8pin is better then other adapters?
The problem with your PSU is that it only has 32 amps on the +12volts. That is only 384watts and that has to be shared with the CPU. Running both PSU's is doable but you have to trick the additional one in to believing it is connected to a motherboard. It is much simpler to buy a new PSU that is capable to handle the card.
