Hi guys, I just got a GTX570 for my computer. Thing is, it requires both of the 6pin plugs as opposed to just one, and I have a stock PSU so I am unable to get two plugs into it. Am I going to need to purchase a new PSU to be able to get two plugs in? Also, I turned the pc on with just one plug in and the GPU was reaaalllly loud. Is this because of an issue with the plugs?
It came with two of those. Are you saying that's all I'll need? Because on a little instruction card the GPU came with it says that it requires both plugs in, whereas there's only one coming out of the PSU
What watts is the psu? The card requires both plugs to be in the card and thats why the adaptors are included in the card package for the situation that is similar to yours when the psu doesn't have enough pci-e power plugs. The GTX 570 requires a 550w psu to be in your computer.
These also would be better quality some are a little more than the one you selected but you do have to pay for quality and unless you are at a low amount of available funds then a good quality psu will be a better choice.
