Hi guys I hope you can help.


I have a m4a785td-v evo motherboard and just bought a xfx r7 260x graphics card. The problem I have now is I cannot get power to the card, have done some research and now think the issue is I need a pci express power cable. What cable do I need? And where would I put it into my motherboard for power?, the card needs a 6 pin.


The card has a slot which would take a 6 pin. From the power supply I have 1 spare 4 pin and one slotted into the motherboard, my question is If I get a 6 pin PCIe would I need an adaptor to go to the 4 pin from my PSU?





PS I’m running Windows 8.1 Pro

You need a power supply that has the 6 pin power cable for your card.


Power supply upgrade time too :thumbup2:
