I've built two machine, but, those were done years ago, back when there was AGP. Today, the new thing seems to be PCI Express. PCI Express x16 and x1...etc.
Looking over power supplies for the case I am going with, I see where some supplies come with PCI-E connectors, and some don't. This is confusing me. Back in the days of AGP, you plugged your video card in the slot, and it was powered from the mother board. Is this the same with PCI Express, or, do they run directly off the power supply, now? In which case, I would need a power supply, with PCI-E power connectors.
Thanks, in advance.
