Nvidia 9800 GTX question...

I only have a single 6-pin connector, would that be enough to run the card, even though Nvidia suggests 2 6-pin connectors.

    No.  If it requires 2, it means the card is a power hog and needs the power.

    The New 9800 GTX +... has only (1) 6 pin

    The older one has (2) 6 pin

    You will need 24 amps on the 6 pin 12 volt rail as well. What power supply do you have?

    Are you certain, I looked on Nvidias site and on the package for the unit and both come up with 2-pin. Where did you hear that the new one only needs 1 2-pin connector?

    I have 500W PS 30+ amps.

    After looking they seem to be making them with both single and dbl 6 pin now....so order the right one!
