  1. A 450w is a fine amount for the GTS 450. And what are the connectors? If it is two 4 pins, you will need to get a molex to 4 pin adapter.
  2. so i can connect black coloured molex to graphic card??
  3. so i dont need a splitter?

    If your PSU have the 6PIN PCIe connector, you do not need to split it. It should fit right into the graphics card.

    No. The PCIe power requirement of the 450 is 1x6PIN PCIe & not MOLEX.

    No. You do not need to split anything.

    I see. I guess I got confused with your original post.

    If you do not have PCIe, this is what you need:

    I would have recommended to just get a AMD 7750 which performs at same level as the GTS 450 but does not require a PCIe connector. However, I saw that there are $69.99 GTS 450 where the AMD 7750 is usually $109.99
  8. Yes, you may. They are electrically the same so it will work.
  9. thanx
