I just bought a Galaxy GTX 560 and I currently have a Corsair 620 watt power supply. I connected the power to the gpu but no power when turning on pc. Did i miss something? The gpu does have a second power connector (8 pin i think) but i only see a 2 pin additional on the wire. Help!

Did you even try to see if it's the Video Card using too much power or not? Take the VC(VideoCard) out and see if it works... Have everything worked b4 you plug that VC in?... BTW, check every connector that connect to each port and see if they are all connected...

Yes the power supply works fine. I had a 8800 gts 512 that fried I guess but everything was working fine in regards of power. The only thing I can think of is the one power connector is not enough since the gpu has 2 power inputs.

Or I'm completely wrong and something else is the problem

Are you saying that there are two 6/8 pin connectors on the card and you only plugged one in your power supply?

There are 2 6 pin connectors on that card. They both need to be plugged in.

if your PSU is the HX it should have 2 6 pin connectors.
If it has a 6 pin and an 8 pin then you may need an adapter since not all 8 pin connectors are 6+2 connectors

So is it just the one connector needed? The instructions say some gpus need the additional aux connected as well. But it doesnt look like my power supply has the required wiring.

Im hoping its just not seated or connected properly.

Oh, so then is there a way to make my power supply compatible or do i have to return the gpu for another?

You need all required power connectors connected to the card.
a corsair 620 regarless of the exxact model can run this GPU.

either return the video card or upgrade your PSU.

Edit: Yeah double check if your PSU has another 6 pin connector, sometimes they can be hard to see if you bought a retail computer...

I had my pc put together from scratch, i didnt want to do it myself just in case. Im less stressed knowing my psu is fine as is. Im guessing i couldnt initially find the second connector
