    Can I connect GPU to this PSU?


    Hello,
    so I am buying a new GPU to upgrade my system. Since the new GPU is more power demanding than the previous one, it requires a 6-pin connection from the PSU in addition to the power provided by the PCI-E slot. I just checked and my PSU only seems to have a couple of 4-pin connectors (I will attach a few images so you can see what I'm talking about). Will I be able to connect the GPU in some way? Perhaps with an adaptor? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    :)

    PSU/GPU Power Problem


    so it is safe to say it is not the PSU or GPU as the cause of the issue..

    You stated the issue is when the GPU is plugged into your case..

    Since the PSU plugs into the GPU (and both appear to be testing good) the only other common connection is the MOBO or card slot

    Tested GPUs on friend's PC and they worked fine. Switched out my gpu with another 500w tried different PSU/GPU combos but none worked.
