Msi GTX 770 connectors

Hi,

I'm rebuilding my old PC and I got a new GPU the MSI 770 which has 2x8 pin connectors.

I have one 6+2 and another 6pin can I use a 6to8pin adapter? I have also seen 6to2x8 pin adapters. I also have 2x4pin, but it doesn't fit.

GPU connectors: top row: square house house house bottom row: house house square square

PSU connectors: top: house | house house squar bottom: house| square house house

Can I connect the house shape to the square? (it fits I just don't know if it should)

I hope this is not to confusing :)

I got the 6 to 8 adapter it should all fit. I also checked if my PSU is powerful enough for the card and it all checks out.

I'm going to plug it all in tomorrow and hopefully it will work.

What PSU are you using? I'd recommend just selling the GTX 770 and buying a new RX-570 or something similar. Less power usage and faster. Really anything from a GTX 960 and above is faster than a GTX 770.

Silent Power LC600H-600W/12 V2.31

It's an old PC so I don't really want to spend a lot of money. It's more for fun.

Yeah I hear ya on that. It just seems like that PSU is pretty basic and a GTX 770 is kind of hungry. Though, If It's more for just fun. I'd just rock the 6 to 8 pin adapter like you did.
