powering video card in a new computer
March 12, 2014 8:54 PM Subscribe
I bought a new computer and realized that the power supply does not have a dedicated six pin cable for my video card. It does, however, have two sata cables coming from it (like this
) that are situated in reserve for an extra bay device and also an extra hard drive. Can I use an adapter to sufficient convert them as a power source for a six pin Radeon HD 6850
? If so, would it require a converter for both sata connections, or just one?
