Hey,

I was looking to buy a new graphics card. I was looking at the following cards:
GTX 560 Ti
GTX 560 Ti - 448 Cores
GTX 570

I have an Antec BP500u (Antec Basiq Power 500W) I know that all the cards need 2x 6-pin to connect them. But since my PSU only got 1x 6-pin connector is it then still possible to connect them with something like a molex adapter (I don't know what this is)

And which card is the best one to choose (that will work with my power supply)
I'm not planning on overclock him, But I'm gonna make 100% use of the card when I'm playing games.

I hope you have enough information.. If you don't have enough information just ask it and I'll answer.

Regards,
Brian

That is a good psu, it will handle ok 560 ti, and for price/performance best one if the 560 ti 448 cores, so i would go for it if you can...

you can use a molex to pci adapter yes, they normally come with the gpu itself.

GTX 560 Ti. thats the only card that will run fine on your PSU out of those three. and yes you can use your 1 6-pin and a molex to 6-pin adapter on the other. most GPU's comes with a molex to 6-pin adapter these days.

I think I'm gonna get the GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores (Since the eXtreme Power Supply Calculator says I use 407W with a GTX 570)

yup but i wouldn't let my system reach close to the PSU's limit just to be safe.

Any decent 500watt PSU will handle any single GPU card and the molex to 6pin adapter will work just fine I have used one for years with no issues at all.
