so i got my xfx radeon 7850 2gb card in the mail today and it requires 2 6pin pci-e plugs
my computer is open on my bed right now,
went to plug in the power cords and realized my 650 rosewell psu have 2 cords that end in 6pin pci express plugs but on just one cord it has 2 6pic, one named pci-e and the other 6pin on the cord is called SLI ready..
can i just plug in one cord into my card using the pci-e and the sli ready ? they are both 6pin afterall. and are on the same cord..
or should i play it safe and jsut use 2 cords and use both pci-e plugs?
i would hate to have 2 cords leading across my case to get into my card....
Normally I would say that you should check and see how many rails and amps per rail, but the 7850 should only need on PCIe connector anyway. Some companies have reused 7870 PCBs to save money and those all have 2 PCIe connectors. So it should be fine just to use both from one rail as it doesn't need more than one connector worth of power to run the 7850.
