Power Supply Not having PCI 6 pin

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 ?

  1. 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

    i needed a miniumum of 500w and i thought if even this wasnt even 680 watts that it would still be enough
  3. 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.
  4. +++^!!!

    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=N82E16817139027
  5. im going to return the one i just got on monday and i think they have that 430 watt at the store i bought the other one , and if they dont happen to have that there , will the coolermaster 500w? do it ? because i know they have one of those there
  6. the store i got it from is http://www.dalco.com/

    coolermaster is iffy quality. I see that the store carries Antec and Corsair. Pick either
  8. 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
