I have atm, Cooler Master Silent Pro M 700w (so the older version of this)
And my biggest "problem" is that pci-e cabel that going out from this is only 6pin & 6+2pin, and my GPU wants 2x 8pin (works with 1x8 and 1x6 so no NEED) but thinking of future etc.
As my plan is to running 2x 7970.
So either I getting one new PSU, I guess 720w is way enough for double gpu, some hdd's, ssd's etc, and 1000w is overkill and only needed for like 3-4 gpu's?
But other question, how is a PCI-e 6pins -> PCI-e 8pins converter working? I know its only grounding on the "2 new pins" but is it recommendend to run with a converter like this? Or is it more recommended to just get "real" 8pins on a new PSU
My old psu can be reused in a future computer for my little sister, so its not total waste to buy a new for just this reason. BUt if its just as good as running converter 6->8pin as it is to have 8pin from begging, I might just get some converters :P
