If the PSU has PCIe power adapters, they would be a 6 pin or 6+2 pin plug. The 6+2 pin has a break-a-way on the 2 pin, leaving the 6 pins for the GPU. What is the PSU make?

What is the make of your PSU? You should have atleast 1 PCIe connector and then you can use a molex adapter if your GPU requires it

Psaz-cp600 worst case I have 1 unused molex and a 4pin floppy could I convert the floppy into a molex then get another adapter

I agree, get a decent PSU.

Yep, I agree, it's never a good idea to plug a super nice video card into a no name cheap PSU. Here's another good choice:

Looks like somehow the link isn't working but I just wanted to point to the Corsair TX-650 version 2.

If that's the case I'm just gonna hold off save to make a brand new build but thank for the psu like I'll probably get one of those for the new one
