GeForce GTX 560 Ti HELP!!!

I have a power supply with 400w and it only has one 6-pin PCIe so if i buy a GeForce GTX 560 Ti would the video card only work with one 6-pin PCIe or would it need two 6-pin PCIe for the card to work???

  1. What is the PSU >
  2. Yes you need 2 x 6-pin PCI-E power connectors otherwise the card won't work at all. Note that you could also convert some of your molex plugs to PCI-E they sell adapters for that but I'm not sure I would do it on a cheap power supply. What's the brand and model of your PSU? They also recommend a 500-Watt PSU for that card. If you plan to add a nice video card in your system I would suggest you replace the PSU as well if you don't want to fry the card. Get a good brand like Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, etc...

    Here's a good quality one, good bang for the bucks also:

  3. Yeah i did some more research nd the video card comes with adopters. The brand is DYNEX nd model is DX-400WPS.

    would this psu do the job?

    i want to buy the 750 but my money is tight right now
  4. NOOO. Get ONLY XFX/Seasonic/Corsair/PCP/Antec.

    For a single 560Ti Antec Vp 450W will suffice you ands its 30$ on ncix.

  12. You need at least a 500w Power Supply to support your GTX 560 Ti. If you have a lot of hungry components you might want to get a 650w or higher. Don't scrimp on your power supply or you'll just have to upgrade it later on. Do it right now and avoid issues that come from being underpowered. I saw this model on New Egg.

    CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 500W

    Well yes im Albanian.

    And to come to the topic :

    @that Res 560 Ti can max out everything. But for the price i suggest Hd 7850 2 Gb XFX 170$

    And the Antec Vp-450W 31$

    Gigabyte 7850 1 Gb will do the job to at 1280x1024. But if u plan to get a new monitor i suggest getting the 2Gb as VRam easily rises on 1080P.
  15. My girlfriend is Albanian too lol

    okay thanks a lot for everything man
    ill hit you up again when i have another problem haha
  16. Sure ;)

    Glad i helped you.

    Good Luck !
