Hey guys, so the card I want to get is an HD 5850. The requirements say 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors. I'm not sure if i have these or not? First, are these attached to the power supply? I have this power supply http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811148044 .. is it compatible? From the pictures I've seen of 6-pin PCI, it doesn't look like my PSU has 6 pin? If this is the case, is there a converter or anything i can use? If not my second question is if i don't have the 6 pin, whats the best video card out that I can use that just uses X16 slot? Thanks guys

My specs are as followed
CPU: Intel Core i3-2105 with Intel HD 3000 Graphics 

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H67N-USB3-B3 

RAM: CORSAIR 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3

The six pin power connector is part of the power supply connections, YES, BUT the link you provided does not give any information about the power supply other than the fact that it is a 480 watt supply.

There are many adapters available online from Molex, SATA to PCIe(4 to 6) converters. You must physically check the current available connections for your PSU.
