Asus ENGTX560 TI DCII TOP PSU help!

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.

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

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151096

    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.
  2. Thanks for the answer.
    My PSU is this one:

    Do you think it's compatible and enough to run the Asus ENGTX560 ti?
  3. 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.
  4. Yes, I suppose it will be fine.
  5. But it only has one PCIe connector.Is it compatible with the graphics card?
  6. Yes it will be compatible. If you buy the card new, it will come with a power splitter.

    Click on Specifications and half way down, under accessories, it says :"2 x Power cable"


    Most PSU's just wire a second PCI Connector in paralell anyway. So you will be fine.
  7. Thanks a lot for the help guys.
    I'm gonna buy that one.


    Peace out.
  8. Very similar question with very similar card:

    Thanks for being gentle to a first-time poster.
  9. Yes, but it's going to be cutting it close.
  10. I'd suggest buying a PSU from a reliable company.

    Plus, it has enough watts going into the 12V rail so you won't have an issue with powering your system.
