Hey guys, sorry bit of a tech noobie here.

I recently purchased a EVGA GTX 560 TI 448 classified edition. It arrived this morning, so i set about installing it. I found out that it comes with a 6 pin connector and 8 pin connector, this worried me as other graphics cards i had had only used 2 6 pin connectors. It came with a 8 to 2x6 pin connector. So i connected up my 6 pin and then plugged the 8 pin adaptor in, then connected one of 6 pins to my PSU's 4 pin.
Booted it up, and blank screen. Realised it wasnt getting enough power.
Do i need a new PSU or am i connecting it wrong
Images below of my PSU, and the connections.

Seems like you need a new PSU as the rail the molex connectors do not provide the amps needed to power the card and your PSU is 375w vs the card needing a 550W PSU.

Any Cooler Master Silent Pro, 700W is fine, you may go higher if you feel confortable getting 800W or 1000W

It's not necessary for him to get 1000W. A 700-800W would be fine if you ever decide to SLI the 560 Ti in the future.

Corsair is another good brand as well.
