Had a look at the manual.Not the best help, but I would go for E1.

The Card is in the PCI Express Slot, and with the card came 2 4 Pin PCI-E Connectors the one on my PSU has 6pins.

Did you get a manual with this card,the reason I ask is all I am doing is reading from the pdf version and it tells me that I need a 475W PCI compliant psu with either 2--6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors or 4--4 pin molex power connectors.

If you have the molex connections on your card you might need to nip to your local Maplins and get a couple of 3 way splitters.

Oh by the way nice card.

Thanks Slayer, as far as I'm aware it didn't come with the manual so I looked on the site for the manual it has come with the PCI-E connectors it has the splitters at the end If I'm not mistaken.
