Sorry im just curious and i got no experience at all:
im just wondering, my Graphics card needs 2 x 6-pin pci-e supplementary power connectors . My PSU only have one 6+2 Pin Pci-e connector. I just wanna confirm what i need to do. What im thinking is shown below:
The card will get power to the PCI-e slot mainly: 2.0 x 16
but will need supplementary power so then i need to do the one below since i only got 1 x PCIe 6 pin connector on my PSU.
Just wondering is this correct? : the stuff below V
Card put on the PCIe Slot 2.0x16
PSU >>>>>>>> (One 6+2 PCI-e Connector) >>>> ill connect to the 6-pin PCI-e power socket on my GPU
Two 4-Pin Peripheral Connectors needs to be attach to an adapter (2 x molex) which converts into one PCI-e power connector which is then ill use to connect it to the 2nd 6 pin PCI-e power socket on my GPU.
Yeah, you have it right, but what PSU and what GPU?
I got a gtx 580 but im still in a process of figuring out which brand of PSU i should get after the last one burned up i just can't work with my laptop.
I was searching online then found a really cheap bargain like price with a brand CiT PSU but it only comes with x1 pci-e 6+2 connector but i need 1 x 6 and 1x6+2 so i made this thread .
But again after searching even deeper i found out that CiT isn't reputable enough and i should go to a better brand because maybe next time the PSU will take all of the other components on its doomsday burning
So now im looking at more reputable brands ocz, crossair.. etc. but they are definitely not cheap still searching.
But anyways, thanks for the reply I will probably post what ill come up tonight before i go to out.
