I got the card, just realised my PSU doesn't have a 6pin PCI connector though, would a 4 pin molex to 6 pin PCI adapter do the job or would i be better off getting a new PSU?

I'd be leaning towards getting a new PSU personally, what's a good one to get for my system and what wattage do i need?


I have:
MSI 770-c45 mobo
2x2gb ram (DDR3 OCZ Platinum 12600)
Athlon XII 445
Ati 6770
dvd drive and 2 sata hard drives

Cheers!

Would that stand up to upgrades in the future?

There's a guy selling one on Adverts i was looking at, very similar to that but higher powered

Here

Would that be too much juice?

Cheers.

I get instant Gmail notifications of replies.

There are better PSUs out there than the CX line, though not for €60. If you can get him to ship it to you (from Galway, no less) for that price, I'd go for it.

Actually, forget that. Komplett has it for €65 delivered.

Cheers Serephucus.

I think the asking price is down to €50ish now, i might be able to get it down a wee bit more!

Komplett are usually well slow for deliveries (for me anyway) i want to try and sort something out asap.

If you call them and check if they have any local stock, they'll be very quick, otherwise they get stuff sent from the Netherlands, which can take a couple of days on top of An Post.

That might be another option. By the time you come around to upgrading again, it'll be the 7000 series at least, and they're looking to be very power efficient, so you could get away with running a 7950 on it, I'd guess.

I have a problem with the new card. The fan is only spinning for a second or two then stopping. It's doing this on/off thing constantly. I thought it was my power supply not giving it enough power at first do i ordered a new 650w one... still the same problem!

I tried resetting the Cmos jumpers (when i move the jumper and power it on, the fan stays going constantly)

Anyone have any ideas about this?
