post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've got a 1000w Antec Quattro, could I convert some of the molex connectors, or will I need a new supply?

i think u will be fine with that 1kw psu... i have a 700w+ a power booster gpu psu thats 450w for a total of 1150w, and i dont even use more then 700-800w on full load really and thats with tri-sli 9800gtx+'s i can imagine that 280's might need alil bit more power but not much. i say give it a shot with ur current psu, then if u have problems buy this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817104054 its a life saver u dont need to spend 300$ for another good psu when u can keep ur existing 1 and add this on it. then u would have 1450w which should definately hold u off on power for a long time.

1000 watts will be fine as long as the PSU is actually capable of outputting 1000 watts. And you will know when the computer doesn't work/crash, just make sure to split the load between 2 chains of molex's and use the one closest to the PSU to avoid starting a fire
