    Default PSU and gtx 560

    So I just made a new build and I realized that my psu Newegg.com - XFX ProSeries P1-450S-X2B9 450W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Core Edition V2 Full Wired Power Supply only has a 1x6 +2 pcie power connector. My gtx 560 needs a 2x6 pcie power connector. Does anybody have any ideas on how to fix this issue? Thanks.

    The best approach would be to buy a slightly more powerful power supply that comes with 2 pci-e power cables such as Newegg.com - XFX Core Edition PRO550W (P1-550S-XXB9) 550W SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Power Supply, which is currently available for $64.99 after rebate.

    A web search using: video card molex power connector will show that you can buy and use a molex to pci-e adapter cable.
    Depending on your hardware setup, a 450 watt power supply is borderline if you are going to overclock your video card to high levels.
