    Default Is there a power supply adaptor/spliter?

    Hello everyone,
    So i have this new graphics card which a friend gave me (Nvidia's gtx 470) and it uses a 12 pin power cable , the problem is my power supply is a (thermaltake 450) and only has a 6 pin and a 2 pin cable. Is there some kind of adapter i can but to change the 2 pin into a 6 pin?

    You may be able to find a molex adapter but I wouldn't recommend it.
    The PSU is only 450w anyway and thermaltake as well.
    meh.

    Get another PSU, you risk underpowering everything by using adapters.
    wipe your paws.

    DON'T use your PSU with that card. Thermaltake are pretty rubbish at the best of time. Get a decent 550 or 600w from a brand like corsair or seasonic, or cheaper would be cooler master's V series, or enermax also make decent cheaper PSUs.
