Can anyone tell me how I can get an extra power connection from my power unit.
I am wanting to put in a second hardrive but my power unit only has two sockets one is to my hardrive and the other is powering my ati radeon graphic card.
Do I have to forget about the second hardrive.
Any advice would be great.

You can go to the computer store, they have power connectors that will plug into one of the existing connectors, and give you two more....or you can make one if you happen to have another dead power supply around ;)

Thanks, I didn't know you could get those. They say you learn some thing new every day.

Too bad you don't live close, I must have 15 or 20 of them in a drawer here! :D

Thanks for the offer Johnwill. I've found a local place that is selling them for £1.99 although that might break the bank! LOL.
Cheers.
