SuperN00b Question: Motherboard and Graphics card - Page 2

post #11 of 15
You can use 2x two-molex-to-one-6pin PCIE adapters to power your card, but I believe you may be cutting it close with your current power supply. I don't know what other components you have, but the 560ti is RECOMMENDED to have a 500W PSU that can deliver 30A on the +12V rail.

Yes, the 560ti will cover your two lower SATA ports, but if you purchase right angle SATA cables you can still use those SATA ports.

You will also be covering your PCI-E x1 port because of the heatsink/fan, so unfortunately you won't be able to use it unless you have a nice watercooling arrangement. Not a big deal if you don't need a non-integrated sound card or anything like that.

Right. Those recommendations are based upon a generic, low efficiency PSU. Any quality 450w PSU will be plenty of power for a Ti, regardless of the "required" amperage or wattage, per NVIDIA or the card manufacturer. Just see reviews of how much actual wattage the card uses, and refer to your PSU for actual wattage @ 12v rail(s).

Ive been told as a rule of thumb to not use the Molex to 6 pin adapter if avoidable.



I only have 1 cable line ending in 2 six pin connectors. My concern is can that single line power the 2 six pin connectors required in the card? or should i use 2 separate cables entirely?

It'll be fine. If the manufacturer made it that way, it's the way it should be used smile.gif

the Asus 560ti is 9 inches, it will surely cover the sata slots, the pci-e x1, and the topmost pci slot.

The shroud of this 560 is smaller than the 560ti so the normal sata cables may still fit.

Im pretty sure you'll need to use L shaped sata cable for this 560ti, the shroud seems to go all the way to the end of the pcb

the HEC Win Power 550 watt will be fine for a single GTX 560ti
