I am trying to see if anyone else has had the same problem or tried to solve it by doing it this way....
My Power Supply has two 6 pin PCIE connectors available to power a GPU. My HD5850 requires both a 6 pin PCI and an 8 pin PCI connector. So, I am currently missing 2 pins to power my GPU the correct way. I just ordered this to hopefully fix the problem:
Has anyone else been able to solve this same type of issue using this product? I've been reading from some reviews that it worked perfectly and then I've been seeing some folks having issues with not getting enough juice to make a 6pin turn into an 8pin. Does this make sense to anyone?
I would just hate to spend the money on a new PSU if I don't have to.
