Hey guys.
I am about to build a new gaming computer. I decided to buy the Asus ENGTX560 TI DCII TOP but then I noticed it requires two 6-pin PCIe connectors to work. The problem is my psu only has one 6-pin PCIe connector. Do I need to buy a new PSU?

Help please.
Thank you.

If it doesn't have enough connectors it's probably not powerful enough. My card is very similar and this is what I use:

It powers it fine, but with only 4 amps to spare. It says on the case that the minimum required is 38A but the card can reach 44A under continuous full load.

Total of 38A, just barely. I wouldn't bet on it though. I wasted a card once with a weak PSU. Under the slightest load I put on it, even a video, the PC would restart, the GPU was overheating and I didn't realise that it was the PSU's fault until I had to take the card back because the lack of power had damaged it.

Always get headroom when you choose your PSU, it is the last part that you would want to cheap out on.

Yes, I suppose it will be fine.

But it only has one PCIe connector.Is it compatible with the graphics card?

Yes, but it's going to be cutting it close.
