I recently bought a 680 w Power supply and i upgraded to it because my
450w power supply wouldnt be able to power my new Radeon 7850 .
So i went to install the new power supply today and there wasnt a 6 Pin PCI adapter to power my video card ! :fou: 

I think i can buy an adapter but where? and for cheap ?

What power supply did you buy? PSUs are easy to manufacture so there are a ton of knockoffs on the market. Unfortunately many of these knockoffs are downright dangerous

Do yourself a favor and return that thing right now. I'm serious, do not let that PSU touch both an electrical cord and a computer at the same time. It's a knockoff and will not deliver anywhere near 680 watts, perhaps 200 at most before blowing up.

This power supply will run your setup, including the 7850, without issue:

Yes, it is 430 watts. HOWEVER, your computer at full load will likely not exceed 300 watts, ever, assuming you aren't doing anything special. This is the least expensive unit I could possibly recommend. If you feel more comfortable, you can step up to the 500w unit in the Corsair CX Builder Series. But, realistically, it won't be necessary.

I guarantee that garbage PSU you linked will kill your components.

+++^!!!

That unit is absolute junk. Any 650w psu that does not have two 6 pin pci-e leads is junk.
If you look at the specs, it says it can deliver only 22a on the +12v rail. That is about what a 300w psu can do.
They get 680w by delivering amperage to the 3 and 5v leads which is easier to do, but the graphics cards use 12v.

Do not plug it in!!! It can not only fail, but it can destroy anything it is connected to.

Stick with a quality psu. My short list of quality psu's would include Antec, Corsair, XFX, Seasonic, and PC P&C.

This Corsair 500w unit will do the job.
It delivers 34a. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Okay sounds like the antec 500 like geo said dalco carries looks like it would do the trick . thanks everyone from saving my computer from being a time bomb! aha
