Need more power.... question !!!

Hello. I have a 300w PSU but i have run out of power can you tell me that if i get an upgrade to 400w or 550w that there will be more power cables coming from the main puply unit. Thanks, i know that this is kinda a dumb question but i need to make sure before i buy.

The number of connectors does vary, but the only way to know how many are on a particular model, is to look at the spec, or ask, before buying,

In any case you can get extra splitter cables to give you more connectors. This may be all you need with your existing supply(?)

what do you mean by more cables?

what i mean is, are there more power cables coming from the supply unit. Say maybe on a 300w PSU there are four cables supplying power to various drives or on a 400w PSU there may be 5 or 6 cables...

if you buy a 550w psu made by QTEC then you'll have more cables than you'll probably ever need.

And what I mean is, it varies from PSU to PSU. It's not really anything to do with the power rating - though higher wattage models are more likely to have more cables. The only real way is to find out about the specific model you want to purchase.
