hmm... got it today.
Just found out it needs 2 6-pin connectors from the (630w minimum) power supply.
Mine only has 1 & it's about 500w :(

Crap. Wife isn't gonna like this.. lol
Just ordered $80 of RAM, $170 video card, and now I'm gonna need a $60+ power supply :oops:

I faked it for a while with an attachment and a less powerful power supply, my computer would shut off when really heavy graphical things happened...heh.

weird thing..
the card came with a normal 4 pin->pcie 6-pin adapter, yet it says it doesn't support it.. lol

Anyway.. I hooked it up with that & the real 6-pin & it works fine so far :D
