You can get Sata to 6/8-pin adapters but those can be problematic. What are you planning to plug that into?

Brand? Make? Model? etc.

500 watt PSU tells us nothing BUT in 99% of cases if you don't have the required connectors you can't just add them on.

Depends on what PSU you have, which we don't know :)

That could get close in terms of adapters and how much power they can deliver. Are you upgrading with a 570? Do you already have it? If you don't how about a gtx 1650 then you don't need a new psu

An RX570 is a graphics card, not a PSU.

Yh ik I’m plugging the psu cable into the rx 570 which requires a 6 pin power connector.

But I thought a gtx 1650 requires a 6 pin power connector as well because my current psu only has a 4 pin

Some 1650s do need another connectors, but most 1650s only use 75w so they don't need any connecters

Lol sorry just meant to reply to bottom one

 

Yeah sorry here it is https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/22031289118?iid=324048810086

I honestly would get a quality PSU before putting any sort of system together based on that disaster that will likely kill everything when it goes.

Thank you , now I have changed my mind and am going to get a 1650 mini as you get around the same frames in games which is what I will be using it for and then I also don’t have to buy a new psu or anything.

You should buy a new power supply. That thing looks like junk.

the lack of connectors is the least of the issue with the PSU. as such he really shouldnt be connecting anything more than a basic APU system to it.

you should get a new PSU regardless. considering it lacks 6+2 pin connectors, and its a cheap group regulated unit with very questionable claims. 

 

and if you have enough to pick up a 1650, then you likely have enough to pick up an rx 570 and a decent powersupply.

You can use an adapter but that power supply is awful, I wouldn't trust it to work well and not damage your card.


...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Agree.

 

That is a HORRIBLE power supply.

You don't add smth that isn't there in the first place. Because if it isn't there it shouldn't. Get a new power supply. But speaking of 6\8-pin EPS you most likely don't need it if your motherboard boots-up without it, unless you plan to OC your CPU under liquid nitrogen at least.
