Hi, my xps 720 was recently packing 2 gtx 460s running sli until the main card just crapped itself barely a year old. I am considering upgrading to a single card and have my sights on a gtx 580 from gigabyte.
I noticed it requires a single 8 pin connector but my xps 720 has 4 6 pin connectors and i noticed that gigabyte doesnt supply 6 pin to 8 pin converters. Was wondering if just getting a normal converter like this would suffice? http://www.avadirect.com/images/item...PCIE8PPCIE.jpg
Hope u guys can help recommend what card i should get otherwise that might better suit my rig. Do not want to have to change my power supply. Getting my pc ready for diablo 3.
Unless there is a specific reason why you want tp go with Gigabyte then you can go with the Evga card which does come with the two 6 pin connector to one 8 pin connector adaptor that you need. Here are some adaptors to look at.
