Help

so i want to get the xfx double D 7850 and i have a xfx 450 power supply. my issue is my Psu only has one 6 pin and that card requires 2. i have 3 open molex on my rig and i want to know if its safe to get a molex to 6pin. i would really like to not have to buy another Psu. i heard molex put out the same power as a 6 pin, just different kind of adapter. i also see that some Gpu come with the adapter, so i want to know it its safe.

  1. Your idea will work. You can connect to an open molex to provide the other 6 pin power connector to the GPU you want. The question is what else is that PSU powering. You dont want to over tax your PSU.
  2. all i have its my 1 hardrive, cpu, mother board, 3 fans, disc drive(never gets used and could be unplugged) and for USB i have turtle beaches.
    thats all i have running
  3. You should be fine then.
  4. I have a ATI RADEON HD 4870 card. when i boot my pc first time
    it works fine. But if i reboot my pc display card not work. so i turn of pc and disconnect pc from power. After couple of hours card works again. please help me to find some solution. How about bios flash? will it work?
