Hi guys,

Just looking for some help here on a issue regarding trying to find a cable to run the power supply for the graphics card. My nephew has a standard gaming computer which he had purchased from overclockers at christmas. He has now upgraded his graphics card to this

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-220-MS

and we cant seem to find the correct cable to power it up. It came with the standard PCI Express 6-Pin to 4-Pin molex Power Adaptor and the psu does not accommodate for this fitting. See fitting below.

His Psu requires either a 8 pin pci express or a 6 pin pci express, the psu is similar to this one below.

Any help would be great thanks in advance.

Thanks
Ciaran

Hi guys,

sorry for the late reply I couldnt get access to the computer in questions to get the details of the PSU etc. I have taken Photos so as to show what type of cable connections I am looking for

Your card needs a standard 6 pin pci-e connector. Your psu has semi modular capability, and you should have a bag of additional cables. The row of black sockets on the top of your psu are power ports for various cables - find a port that says pci and find the cable that plugs into that port. The port may very well have 8 pins, and the cable may have a connector that is configured as a 6 pin plus an additional 2 pin. Just use the 6 pin portion of the cable (let the additional 2 pin dangle) and you should be good to go.
