Cant find 6-pin connectors for Graphics Card?

I am new to Tom's Hardware so am not quite sure about how to go about asking a question. I will warn you now that i don't know very much about computer hardware, but that is why I have come here for help.

I have found a graphics card that I like and am ready to order it. However on watching videos on how to install a graphics card, I cannot find the 6-pin connectors that are needed for my card in my pc case.

My power suppy is 500w (Just enough power for the card) and it says it is a 'ATX-500204' (???). if anyone would be able to tell me if that psu should have 6-pin connectors to spare, or I am just being an idiot and missing them, please help!

Here are my current specs if these are any help:

AMD Quad core processor - 3.6Ghz
8GB RAM
Integrated Nvidia Geforce 7025/Nvidia nForce 630a (this is why I am upgrading!)

Thanks a lot for any help and if you need any more info just ask and I will try and find out.

  2. Hello Jamster7777,

    A PCI-E 6-pin power connector should look like this:


    There should be power connectors that come out from the power supply unit. If you can't find the 6-pin, then your PSU doesn't have it.

    Can you tell us what brand and model the graphics card you are installing?
    Edit: Just now saw the graphics card you linked.
