9800gx2 wants an 8pin power connector? is there a converter?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
is it right that the 9800gx2 needs an 8 pin power connector? my bfg650w psu has 2x 6 pin connectors, can i use a convertor? i read somewhere that its not a good idea.

anyone out there with one of these cutting edge vid cards that want 8 pin connectors and a psu that has the 6 pin pci express connectors and made it work?

The adapters will work fine, there is no reason why they wouldn't.

Although true the difference with an 8pin is two extra grounds allowing for much higher current flows In reality these cards dont need a 6 and 8 pin connector and therefore the adapters are fine.
