I agree, I should. But I will not overclock any component of my PC. If my current PSU is capable of providing the power, I rather go with an adapter for now. Also, I will upgrade my whole rig next year to a ryzen 2(along with a new PSU).
Hi, I currently have https://www.newegg.com/antec-true-power-trio-tp3-550-550w/p/N82E16817371002 PSU. And I just got a new gigabyte RX 580 8GB and I realized it has a single 1 x 8 pin input. My question is can I use an adapter to use this new card? My CPU is an i5 3570k, 8 GB ram. Before I used a gtx 1060 3gb which required only a single 6 pin input. On amazon there are 2 x 6 pin to 1 x pin converters. Do I need one of those? I really don't feel like getting a new PSU(hope I won't need to!). Thank you! PS: This is my first post in Linus forums:)
