I need to test out a recently acquired GTX 980ti. Currently this is what I have at my disposal:

Nvidia 680i LT sli Mobo with 8gb ram

Seasonic SSR-750RM semi modular PSU

GTX 980ti GPU

I realize that the Mobo is way outdated, and is pci-e 2.0. I just need to fire it up and see if the GPU works or if there are issues.

I also need input on connecting the 6 pin and 8 pin from PSU to the 980. The PSU has one cable permanently attached with a 6 pin and 8 pin branching off. Will this connection be enough power or is this a bad idea, and should I run 2 separate modular cables from the PSU?

Again I realize that this is a mismatch, and may not even post, but want to make sure I do no damage by just trying.

Thank you.

it should work, as long the motherboard and psu is not wacky.

Thanks. They worked fine last time I tried about 8 months ago. What do you think about using the cables coming right off the PSU or should I connect different ones?
