Asus Gtx 580 Required Parts

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm going to buy this card tomorrow and replace my 560 ti so i can give it to my dad for his build. on the newegg site a person commented and said

"Cons: Comes with a single dual-6-pin to 8-pin adapter cable. TWO are required for advertised performance. To me this just smells of low quality. Next time, add the cost of the 69 cent cable so I dont have to order and wait 4 days for an additional cable.

Other Thoughts: For 500 bucks, you would think they could toss in two 69 cent adapter cables."

do i need extra cables for mine or does it come with everything i need? thanks.

It'll only come with two 6-pin PCIe to one 8-pin PCIe. You need both 8-pins plugged in for the card to POST.

You only need those adapters if your PSU doesnt have the necessary cables. Your 850w should have 2 8pin PCIe cables.

Well, if you're dropping $500 on a graphics card you should have a PSU with at least one 8pin PCIe.

If for some twisted reason you don't, buy the adapters. An extra $10 or so in the end is a spit in the bucket after a $500 investment.

yeah... my old psu Antec HCG 620 came with 2 x 8 PCI-E adapters... many psu comes with those connections now when you get 550-600+ watts... which is a good idea already when running a GTX 580.

Also I had the ASUS GTX 580 before... it came with two adapters...don't know what you are 'venting' about?
