How to hook up a dual PCI-e powered card & another as a PhysX card?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Okay so i'm getting a GTX 560, and would like to graduate my GTS 250 as a dedicated PhysX card in my second slot on my new motherboard... however all the power supplies i see only have 2 PCI-E power connectors. Given that the high end cards take 2 of those alone... how would i supply sufficient power to my PhysX card as well? Would a molex to PCI-e work? (I may have just answered my own question)

Many thanks,

The molex-pcie will work.
Or dual molex-pcie.

Look in the box 560 gtx you are getting and as mentioned there will be some molex cables in there for pci-express power plugs.

If you are using the PSU in your sig then I would suggest a better one. You are looking at a disaster waiting to happen.
