Looks like there are three lessons to be learned here:

1. Patience is a virtue.
2. Research products before you buy them.
3. Never buy computer parts on Ebay.

Now, to answer your question, if your PSU doesn't have a place to connect a PCI-Express power connector, then you can't use one.

Can you find the brand and model number of the PSU.
Also, please list the amount of Amps under your 12V rail, this can be found on the large sticker on your PSU.

:) Hi,

i learned 1 thing there you're right.



-research products before i buy them.


About the psu the brand is atx and i gave all the specifications, it's a ps-600-bk model. The thing i know is that some models come without pci-express connectors but you can buy an adaptor on some sites i just want to know if it's possible to do that. For the help i was just kidding and tried to put my post back on top so more people could read it and that way i could have more chances to be read. I don,t know why they would make adaptors for that if it had no use.


Thank you anyways. :)

Firstly, I do not recommend buying products on Ebay for a number of reasons, defective parts are just one of many.
Secondly, we operate on volunteer bases, bumping your thread is considered rude, if someone knows an answer they will respond to your thread, if they don't they move on.
ps-600-bk is not what I'm looking for, google is not producing any results.
Use this PSU as an example:
There is no, ATX PSU name that I'm aware of, this is the forum factor of a motherboard, and this PSU is specialized to work on this particular form factor.
What I'd want from this PSU would be, CMPSU-620HX, can you find the model number on your PSU please.
Please make the appropriate adjustments to your post.

You press the edit button under your post on the right hand side.
If you cannot find it, I will notify the admins to remove it. I posted it, so that I could show you what needed to be removed, and would edit my post and remove it after you had done so.
Regardless if you could find an adapter (never heard of one) this PSU doesn't have enough AMPs on the 12V rail to power the card.
If you still cannot figure it out let me know, I will have someone do it for you.

Do what? If you are making reference to making your PSU powerful enough for your card, you cannot.
There are not enough Amps on your PSU, it might power it, but there will be a larger ripple effect which will shorten the lifespan of your parts and likely result in artifacts in game or other odd issues if you try to do this. You must have a generic PSU, as I cannot find any information whatsoever on the web.
Did the seller ever mention where this PSU came from?

Just to let you guys know, I also have a PoWork 600W...paid 20$ over on Ebay. NEVER BUY GENERIC BRANDS! I have a problem now with my 3.3V...it goes down to 2.8. I am now changing my power supply but I do not know which one to choose :S


Thermaltake W0117RU 750w Power Supply SLi Certified

Thermaltake ToughPower 650W W0128RU Modularized Power

I have no SLI...but I like the ability to manage my cables...and also, the power.
