installing Geforce 560

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey people,

First off just want to thank you for the advice on OC'ing so far as my 2.5 E5200 is running at a very stable 3.3 Ghz and I wouldn't have done anything if it wasn't for these forums.

I'm going to be upgrading very soon and would like some advice. I'm buying a second SATA II hard drive to install Windows 7 64 bit professional, a Corsair 750 Watt PSU and a Ge Force 560. Question is I'm a tad confused with the Rails thing on the VGA card. It has 2 6 pin connectors but would I connect them both to the Corsair PSU as it says it gives 60 Amps on a single rail. Does that mean I just plug in 1 6 pin connector? As It won't actually pull 60 Amps? The reason I'm a bit paranoid is I installed an OC'ed 460 a few months back on the PSU listed below, which I still have until I upgrade. It worked fine but then my PC just cut off after about 20 mins and would not power back on. Put my 8800 GTS back in and all was fine!? But I couldn't get the 460 to work at all. The only thing I could think of was my strider PSU has 2 6 pin plugs but they're on the same cable not separate. The card was an EVGA SS clocked version I think. It went back and I got a refund. Any advice would be greatly received.

Hope it makes sense.

Thanks,

Ben

Yes, you connect both to the power supply.
