Can you get a PCI-Express adapter cable for older PSUs or do I have to buy a new PSU for PCI-E ?
Are you talking about a supplimentary Molex connector on a graphics card?? If so, it should be standard, regardless of the card's slot type.
Can I use my old psu for a PCI-E motherboard and graphics card ?I don't know what PCI-E connectors look like ?
If you mean the 20 to 24 pin adapter, these are available.
Older psu have 20 pins. New pci mobos have 24 pins. When you buy an adapter make sure you get 24 leads to 24 leads NOT 20 leads to 20 leads. The extra 4 leads power the graphics.
I've found one look:-click hereStupid question - do both of the 4 pin molex connectors have to be attached to supply enough power to the 6pin PCI-E Graphics connector ?
I bought a 500w PSU about two months ago described as suitable for P4/Athlon.It has the normal 20 pin motherboard connection plus the four-pin adapter in case it is needed.
You can also purchase the four-pin adapters to save splashing out on a new PSU (but if you require the superior wattage output it may well prove a better buy).
Adapters may not be such a good idea, just as Stuartli mentions, "but if you require the superior wattage output it may well prove a better buy". Read post by BigMoFoT at click here. G
