Sapphire radeon hd4870 1gb

Can anyone tell me, does the sapphire radeon hd4870 1gb card REQUIRE two 6pin power connectors? I have 1000 watt power supply but was only using one 6pin power connector with my old card, not sure if I have two 6pin connectors or just one...Please advise....

  1. If it has two power connectors on the card, yes, it requires that both of them be filled. You can just use a molex to 6 pin PCIe adapter if you don't have the second one on your PSU.

    That said, it would be extremely unusual for a 1000W PSU to only have a single PCIe connector. The only reason to get such a high wattage is to run multiple video cards. What PSU do you have?
  2. I gotta be honest, I just got the computer from a friend and I'm not sure what the psu is. my nvidia 8800 gts had 2 power connectors and I just had 1 plugged in.....
