Hi,

This card requires a 6-pin connector. It comes with a splitter-thingie so you can connect to two 3-pin connectors from the power supply instead.

The problem is I can't find a single free connector of any sort. Is this normal for a prefab system like this or am I overlooking something? The case is packed pretty densely so I might well be.

Thanks.

Sorry for the double post, I thought my first post got canceled when I had to register.

You just discovered one of the reasons to build your own computer.......future upgrades. You can try to follow each cord coming out of your PSU and you might get lucky but I doubt it. Prefab systems generally come with no extras at all.

Are you even sure that your PSU has enough watts/amps to handle a 4770?

You might have to upgrade the PSU as well.
