Default Re: GTX570 Gigabyte nvidia Graphics card - dual 6 Pin connector problem

What are the rest of the computer specs. Is is prebuilt (compaq, dell, HP, etc) or is it a custom built computer? How many of the white connectors (aka 4 pin molex) are coming out of the power supply (total not just available) and what are they connected to? You may be able to get a splitter for it to and connect a couple of fans on the same one instead of buying a whole new power supply as long as that one can handle running everything.

That card under load uses about 330w though so it may be better to get a better power supply anyways depending on the rest of stuff running off of it. It would be a shame to fry anything in your computer because of skimping on the power supply. Honestly though it really depends on what your computer specs actually are and the actual specs of your power supply.

I have got the new coolermaster 700W power supply because I checked and felt that the generic power supply that I have may not last long

Good man. When it comes in, just plug everything to the appropriate end and you're good to go. I personally would have gone with that Xigmatek PSU. CoolerMaster power supplies are hit and miss.

Sorry...thats the only one they had that in my budget and I think should do the work as well and should last long for a couple of years at least.
