MSI GTX 760 on 630W PSU w/adapter?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I am a little new to this still, but the PSU I have currently is this one:

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182200

630W with one 6 + 2 pin free for video.

The video card I've been interested in is this one:

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127745


It comes with a molex to 6 pin adapter, now I am wondering with the PSU I have would it be safe to use that adapter for the 6 pin requirement the card has, and the 6+2 for the 8 pin part?


Thanks guys... smile.gif

It's safe to use adapters for the pci-E cables. Also it will be as simple as hooking it up where you can on that power supply as it's a single rail psu.

Multi rail psus, you'd have to make sure not to over load a rail when using an adapter.

Perfect, so it would be safe for me to purchase this video card and install it with what I have now then?

I'm not overclocking I'm just so nervous since I ****ed up on something like this before lol.

The psu has one 6 pin and one 6+2(8pin)

Psu has enough native cables for one of those cards. The psu you have could power two of those cards no problem. If you're going SLI, then you'll need adapters.

Thank you both so much for your information. I Just purchased this card and I can't wait to put it to use!

I appreciate your kind and fast responses, this has always been my favorite site to ask tech questions. Perhaps one day when I understand more I will come back and try and answer some for people too smile.gif
