Power supply general info?
Ok, I was messing with my computer yesterday and installed a new video card that, unlike before, required power directly to the card. I installed the power, and everything was running fine, until about a half hour of gaming when my pc started smelling funny, and then instantly turned off. I couldnt turn it back on.. after messing around trying to fix it, i narrowed it down to the power supply.
SO, not having much money, today I went out and bought a generic masterpower power supply from compusa (500w, up from 350 w) I went to install it, but I realized there is NO P4 CONNECTORS. What?? In fact, all it has is the connection that goes straight tothe motherboard.
However, it has 4 6 pin receivers engraved on the power supply... Am i supposed to go out and buy a 6 pin to p4 connector? Do they even have these? Ive been looking around for them on the internet with no luck.. I got this powersupply for a cheap deal and its the only they had.. Do I have to pay the extra 30 dollars for a supply with less wattage?
