Right now i'm doing my first pc build, and i came to a problem, which is a noob problem.
My PSU has four 6+2pin PCI-E, but my gtx 580 need a 8 pin and a 6 pin connector.
Can i plug the 6+2pin connector into the 8 pin, and the 6 pin connector (of the 6+2pin connector) to the 6 pin?
If not, then what is the solution? do i have to buy another PSU? or is there some kind of converter that i can use?
The 6+2 connectors are designed to fit in either 6 or 8 pin sockets for video cards. That's why they're there. The power is the same whether you use a 6+2 or an 8 pin in an 8 pin socket. And the 6 pin part of the 6+2 connector is exactly like the regular 6 pin connector.... Electricity is like that....
