    6Pin PCI Express Power Adaptor

    I have a little problem..........

    Me (possibly like many others) purchased an Saphire ATI X800XT 256Mb PCIe Graphics Card from SCAN's today only offers page over the Bank Holiday weekend period, for a mere £187 which included VAT.

    Only trouble was i didnt read the ADD properly. I was under the impression that these cards didnt require the Adaptor when the advert stated it didnt come with one. Anyways turns out the X800XL's dont require it but the XT's do. (and i had my XL's and XT's wires crossed)

    So now i have the problem of sourcing such an item, and because i didnt pick up on the fact i needed one, i missed out on the chance of having Scan ship one with my original delivery. That now means it will cost me a total of just under £12 to get one from SCAN (£7 of which is Shipping) for such a small lightweight item.

    So does anyone know where i can find one cheap, does someone have a spare and willing to sell it me for £5 delivered? Need help !!

    LOL, i have them in my Favourite section. Didnt realise they were so close too !! Just down the road from me Thanks

    Buuuuuuuuuutttttttttt.......

    Akasa PCI Express 6 Pin to 4 Pin Power cable adaptor for PCI-E Graphics Cards (CB-018-AK)
    Allows you too use PCI-Express graphics cards with a 6 pin connector with older Power Supplies that only have 4 pin molex connectors.

    Does that mean "Newer" PSU's come with the adaptor as standard? Bcos im intending to purchase a Shuttle SN25P and although ive read all the reviews under the sun i cant remember seeing a 6 pin Power plug for PCIe GFX cards?????
