Connecting GFX to PSU properly? Tags: Power Supplies Connection Graphics Cards Components Last response: February 19, 2013 2:29 PM in Components Share Twistedwheelbarrow February 19, 2013 11:40:41 AM I've recently bought a new graphics card for my PC and it requires two 6-pins to connect it, however I only have a 6-pin and a 6+2 pin available. How would I go about connecting it safely as I don't want to blow anything up or break anything...
