Default Re: PSU Help & New PC thoughts

Thanks b1. It's good to know I didn't waste $120 a year ago.

I'm still wondering how I connect the power supply to the card. If I need two rails to supply the card, does it have two connectors? Is this what you use that adaptor that the card comes with for? Will this become blatantly obvious once I try the install?

Thanks a lot for your help!

It has two PCIe connectors, needed for a PCIe graphics card. But the 8800GTS, only needs one of them, as they only have one power connector slot, for a PCIe connector.
