I am considering putting a Radeon 6970 into my machine ($240 au rather than $400+ for the 7900), and I have a 680w PSU. Weirdly enough though, I have a 6 pin pcie connector, but only one 4 pin molex and 6 SATA connectors. Would I able to use a SATA to molex adaptor to run an 8 pin pcie adaptor to run the 6970?
per delluser1(status addict) from an older thread:
It's a discontinued model ( can't be found on Tt's site ) with a 65%+ efficiency rating and not really a 700 watt unit.
Combined output on the 12v is about 39 amps based on 5v and 3.3v combined max output ( may be capable of a little more on the 12v )
It should do, for how long is anybody's guess.
