Hello, I ordered the SAPPHIRE 100361-4L Radeon R9 290X 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Tri-X OC(UEFI) Video Card, New Edition and it requires 2 x 8 pins connectors. I checked my power supply and I only see 2 x 6 pins and another 6 + 2 pins more. My power supply is the ULTRA LSP 750 W. What can I do? Will my power supply work with the graphic card? Can I use some kind of adapter from 6 pins to 8 pins? Or do I have to buy a new power supply? Thanks

That is a pretty low quality pw supply; what I euphemistically refer to as a "junk unit" If you check the specs, it only shows 45amp on the 12V rail; very low for a unit rated @750W. If you check the specs of this seasonic unit [same wattage] it has 62amp on the 12V rail. In short, you need a new pw supply; here is a link to one that will actually do the job for you. Note you can go higher in wattage if you want however make sure it is a quality pw supply;

Recommended brands; corsair [only hx, tx, or ax models] seasonic, or FSP [only units with the 5yr warranty]
