I`m coming to you with his question because you are the one who found out my psu specs and all. So I have have a small dilemma, im getting a new gpu, i ordered a msi r9 280x unfortunately they are out of stock and dont know when they will come back in stock(i live in switzerland). This gpu used 1x6 pin and 1x8 pin which wasn a problem since I had a cable with 1x6 and 1x6+2... now that 3 weeks have passed from my order (which is my second because at first I ordered a 7970 but they ran out of stock and are impossible to find, reason why i went with r9 280x)I am getting tired of waiting and the site I ordered it from suck butt, they are crap with communication so I want to cancel the order and get another branded r9 280x from another site (msi is sold out everywhere) The problem is that a lot of the cards Im looking at are 2x8 pin
My psu has a total of 3 pci-e cables, 1 is 2x6pin and 2 are 1x6, 1x6+2. My question is can I use the 2 6+2 cables? Or should i do 2 sata power cables to 1x8 pin + 6+2 pin?
I couls also just get another card that has the 6+8 pins but Id prefer the His turbo boost, or saphire vapor x
thanks for your help
