I am on PCPARTPICKER and I have saw an incompatibility and I am not sure exactly what it means. The error is:

Warning: The video card PCIe 16-pin power connector adapter is being supplied by three 6+2-pin power connectors. Please ensure that the three 6+2-pin power connectors are not daisy-chained and do not share the same power cable.
How do I know if the power connectors are daisy chained and if they share the same power cable?

My current list is below:

Thanks for any help/advice :)

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!


Notice how one end is 8pin and then terminates as 2x6+2pins, for the PCIe connectors? The single end is what plugs to the PSU end, the dual termination is where you're going to see a daisychain happen, you're advised to avoid any daisy chains. The PSU you picked in your parts list has 3 cables, meaning 6x6+2 ends, so if you forget to connect the daisychained ends, you get 3x 6+2(effectively one 8pin) PCIe connector for the GPU.

Just an FYI, I source that image above, from here;

If you don't have that much of a budget, drop down to DDR4 rams and DDR4 motherboard.

Thank you, so on that basis I assume the PSU/GPU ive choose is fine and no daisy chain will not occur?
