Old ATI Radeon X1950 gpu and a Seasonic M12II 620W EPS12V 20/24PIN ATX Power Supply PFC 80. Power issue.

I am going to sell my 7970 and I thought I could use an old ATI Radeon X1950 gpu. I assume that the power connection is the 3 gold pins on top of the card. I do not see a cable from my PSU to fit this. Please advise. Thanks.

I believe there should be a single 6-pin connector for this card. Not sure why you are not seeing it.

Is this the card you have?

If you have 2 free molex connectors you can use a cheap adapter to turn them into a 3x2 video card power thing (I'm assuming that when you say 3 pin connector this is what you're talking about).

According to http://www.seasonicusa.com/M12II-Bronze.htm you will need an adapter to make this GPU work if it's truely 3 pin. I would find out what the GPU is expecting in terms of voltage and ground etc on which pins. This should make it easier to find an adapter. A picture might help us here too of your GPU because I think based on google image searches it should be a 6 pin which you have and should work just fine without any adapters.

You should throw up a picture of your card. If you can't find a cable from your power supply that fits it I can guarantee you it's not the power connector.

That's not power. Good thing you didn't try to plug power into it! The connector to the right thats big and 6 pin is your power. It's off the back of the card where they always are. I am guessing your 3 pin might be audio?

Thanks. The 6 pin port was sideways. Did not see that......
