Hello, and thanks for taking the time to help me. I'm in the process of upgrading my video card, but I'm not sure if my power supply has the right power connections for the vid card. The card I'm looking at is a Sapphire Radeon 6870.
Your PSU only has one of those connectors currently connected to your 8800GT. CM extreme is not the best of PSU's but should handle the card using a molex to PCIe power adapter for the second connection..
I've installed the card, used the packaged adaptors, and now my computer won't boot fully. When I first booted it after installing the card it went all the way to windows before dropping to a blue screen. I booted again and now it won't fully boot up at all. Is it possible my PSU just isn't enough? Or perhaps good enough and I need a different one?
If this is the case, does anyone have a link to an affordable one? My wife is already not happy about buying the Vid Card.
