Was wondering if I could get some advice from anyone...just bought 8800GT connected to my 22" 16:10 display and have it in my rig with 450watt power supply but when package arrived on the box it states for minimum of 500watts. Will this ruin my power supply? or do I need upgrade immediately?
Also the 8600GT has 2 power connectors but I only have 1 connected...yeah still learning how to build my own but need help from time to time. Searched how to install these 8600GT cards but the only vids I found are the installs of the cards that don't have these power connectors and draw their power directly from the motherboard instead of the power supply.
I also have 6600GT in vacant PCI-E slot connected to 19"
Any help is greatly appreciated...
