Know that buddy. New cards are coming so we are all excited. Ive built enough PC's to know that some 350 PS hold a better load than some so called 420 PS.canadian_divx said:its does not need a huge PSU people it just needs a good one that can dish out the amps that is all so there is no need to go more than a 420 but u just need to get a good one
Sonys full of **** at times.ElementalDragon said:Goatman, you'd expect them to know what size PSU was in which model computer if you TELL them the model number, wouldn't you?

maybe it's a bad idea to split it then.patrick said:What I don't get is why it would need two molex plugs. If you're just going to use a splitter on the end of the PSU cable to split into two seperate plugs then what difference would it make if you had one plugged in or two?
Well the 12 pipeline version(non-ultra) since its suppose to be single slot will not kick out that much heat.NerdUprising said:
Well probably depends more on your PSU and how many amps you get on each rail more then anything. With a cheaper PSU or just one w/ lower amps your probably gonna have to use different molex rather then 1 w/ a splitter I would think. But I'm not exactly sure on the rating but I'm sure someone that does know will come and correct me if needed.patrick said:Just on the subject of molex connectors, I haven't done anything crazy like try and hookup 6 HDDs all split from the same PSU molex cable but does that mean that we actually have to be careful not to hook up too many devices up to the one individual cable coming from the PSU and ensure that you don't use too many splitters etc?
For example my FX5900 came with a splitter cable, should I actually be considering not using the splitter to have the video card share with another HDD or anything else with high power requirements?
