This is the 2nd time I see someone not receiving the power connector from eVGA. I got an eVGA but never needed the connector, so I haven't checked and the box is stored somewhere deep in the attic.


Call eVGA if you really need that connector, I've never needed it from my previous card that included it.

It's probably a good sign that you need a better power supply for your system when your power supply physically lacks enough default molex connectors to power your video card and your optical drive at the same time

i know that i should buy a new psu but i had to beg my dad so much to get my 6600gt and now i have to beg him again for a 30$ psu. i was going to go with this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153023
or this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817148027

i dont know which one to choose

$30 PSU is probably not going to cut it. I would get the $40 Fortron 400W. Link.
post #10 of 18
Those units he mentioned will be good enough. I think my 400W FSP is a little overkill, even if it is from a really good company.
