Dumb Question about installing a GTX 560Ti Tags: Graphics Cards Gtx Graphics Last response: January 31, 2012 2:12 AM in Graphics & Displays Share cryptologix December 22, 2011 6:15:11 AM Ok I have a really dumb question as I haven't built a PC in a very long time. I have a GTX 560Ti and it has 2 x 6 pin slots for psu connectors on the card. Do I need to use 2 6 pin connectors or can I just use one?

Ask ! Get the answer cryptologix December 22, 2011 6:25:59 AM I'm using a modular corsair 750w PSU. It comes with PCI-E connectors. They are configured as 6 and 2 split out for a total of 8. m 0 l JackNaylorPE a c 225 U Graphics card December 22, 2011 6:27:48 AM Plug in two cables....the 6 pin part and leave the +2 hanging m 0 l amuffin a c 109 U Graphics card December 22, 2011 6:28:20 AM Does it come with 2 six pins? Also did the card come with an adapter? m 0 l cryptologix December 22, 2011 6:34:18 AM It did come with 2 6 pins. So I think my options are to use the 2 6 pins it came with and connect them to one adapter that my PSU came with OR do what Jack said and run 2 seperate PCI-E connectors that came with my PSU and leave the +2 hanging. Are both of these options viable? m 0 l legacykid January 30, 2012 5:53:19 AM have you solved this?, i notice mine will one have the light on, when i plug in the 6+2 in the 8 slot, and another 6 in the other 6 slot.. but my comp will not recognise it... m 0 l amuffin a c 109 U Graphics card January 30, 2012 6:35:37 AM legacykid said:have you solved this?, i notice mine will one have the light on, when i plug in the 6+2 in the 8 slot, and another 6 in the other 6 slot.. but my comp will not recognise it... what power supply?
