Gtx 960 installation

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Noob question. 

I have just bought a used gtx 960 but it doesn't have any cables for extra power. What do I need to get it to work? It has 2 6pin connections. Do I need to use both?

Yes you need both and your psu should have the cables. Either attached directly or option if it's modular.

Probably because the 960 is usually even cheaper
