Need to add 2 PCIe cables.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My 5850 should be coming back from RMA and than I am going to XFire. PSU only has 2 6 pin conections and I need 2x6 and 2x8. Whats the best way to add Just get molex to 8 pin? Should I put them on seperate rails or are they fine on just one? Wish I could find something premaid that will plug into PSU tried but no luck.

Wil I have the PSU experts here how many conections is ok for 1 rail. Can I do pump, fan controller,hd, ssd and DVD rom or should I split them up?

Pic of PSU.

So I found these. I can take a single PCIe and split it to run 1 card. Should that work OK?http://www.frozencpu.com/products/82...27&id=eBkf28fG
