  1. Your build link is not right. You need to use the permalink on the top left part of the page. Or use the export/markup link and do the BBCode.

    You also did not explain what you get. You just said you get this.......
  2. You need to export your build for us to see it.
  3. the psu has a vga cord amongst other cords. it has a 6pin with a 2 pin hanging off the side, but the gpu has a 8 and a 6 do i need to use the extra cord to have both pluged in?
  4. Best answer
    Yes sir. However many plugs the GPU has, you need to have them all plugged in. My 280x has the same 8 and 6. My 260x only has a 6. And my 7570 doesn't have any lol.

    What if your monitor only supports one type of plug?
  6. ok gunna give it a shot. are there cords for a split of the two? because i wanna sli one day and ill only have one cable with http://s874.photobucket.com/user/phuquy219/media/Capture_zps80bbeba1.png.html my psu's cable is that one except without the 6 pin on the right.
    ^ will that cable work?
  7. it worked:) now im too the reboot and select proper boot device screen:)
  8. There ya go. If you wanted to SLI in the future, you would have to have another 8 and 6 pin connector going from the PSU to the second card.

    I was referring to the power connections for the GPU. Not the display plugs.
