Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 1060 WF2 3GB GDDR5 PCI-E power question.

I am looking at buying this

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01KHWOAR4/ref=pe_3187911_185740111_TE_item

and have read a few things about power supply compatibility issues regarding 6 or 8 pin connections? I have an OCZ OCZ-CXS500W at the moment. Can anyone tell me if this will work? Or will i need to upgrade? And if so what to?

TIA

  1. your PSU has a 6 pin PCIE connector and so does the card so you should have no problems
  2. Best answer
    1 x 6+2-pin PCI-E .....you have a 6+2 ,. but you will only need the 6 pin leave the EXTRA 2 pin out.

    Yes you have enough power and and the proper PCIE connection to power the card


    Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 1060 WF2 3GB needs 22 amps on the 12v+ rail and a 400W - 450W power supply with a 6 pin.

    Your all set.

  3. gpu comes with cables you dont need buy extra.
