Question, can I hook up 2 PSU's at once? I could put the second PSU somewhere else, and just give the GPU the extra cable needed?

Do you think my life could get any worse at this time? Oh wait, it just did. That other PSU of mine doesn't even have the *&$^%*&#$^*&#^% right hookup to fit in that %*&^#$&^$R*& card. -____- So another question comes to mind lol, any body by chance have a spare PSU that has at least 1 of those connectors? preferably 2... This morning (i've been at it since 5 am) I was getting so mad at this stupid thing, now i'm about ready to laugh haha, or cry.. :P

You can get a new PSU for under $40 with the 8 pin PCI express connector. I would just buy a new PSU.

(MAKE SURE YOU GET ONE WITH THE RIGHT CONNECTOR!)

... It's really saddening when people talk like $40 is nothing. If I could afford all the new parts I want then I wouldn't be on this computer... I don't have $40. I have the right connector, just not ENOUGH of them. It's not an 8 pin, it's 2 6 pin..

No problem Life.
I would give you a PSU if you lived in Denmark.

Haha yeah, after shipping it'd probably cost nearly as much as a new one :P
