Power supply for 9800gtx / 9800 gx2

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Currently I have a 8800 gts512 and I am going to be stepping up to the 9800 gtx for basically nothing but I was thinking about the power connections. Right now my system doesn't draw much power and I have a decent psu. I have the ocz gamexstream700, and I was wondering if this is a good fit for the 9800 gtx. I am going to be getting a e8400 or a q9300 when I replace my mobo. Will this psu do the trick?

Maybe I might get 9800 gx2 depending on how things go. This psu doesnt have right connection for this yes? As that gpu uses a 6 and an 8 pin connection, how would I deal with this? If I decide to wait and use the 9800 gtx is sli instead, then I'd need more power connections yes?

What I was wondering is if I could use another psu for that second graphics card. I have another psu in a second computer that has the nessacary connections. Would this work?

That PSU will be fine. And they make 6 pin to 8 pin adaptors
