  • Gforce 9800 gtx power issues

    I got one the other day to replace my burned out 7800 problem is I only have enough connections for one 6 pin connector and it looks like I need two but I do not have any more free 4 pin molex cables left and there isn't any 6 pin connectors that come from the power supply. So am I basically not gonna be able to run it with out getting a new power supply?

    Probably. If it's like my 8800 gtx it needs a lot of power to run properly. It couldn't hurt to get a new power supply, they're not all that expensive (100 or less) for a decent one

      This belongs in the General Hardware/Software forum.

      You'll have to check the amps required for the card and see if your PSU provides it on the 12V line. Then you can get a power cable splitter for your current 6 pin connection or an adapter so you can hook it up to the card. Although, it's likely your PSU may not be sufficient and you have to get a new one.

      - It's who you game with.

        Go to best buy and grab the 600w power supply by bfg, great buy, I had to do the same when i got a new graphix card.
