    which type ps plugs are needed for this graphics card?


    Unless I overlooked it, it doesn't tell which type or how many ps plugs are needed for this graphics card does anyone know? I've already ordered one so I hope, I have the necessary plug/plugs needed. Also, surely it is win 8.1 compatible? OH, the card I ordered is 280 not, 280X Thanks! MSI USA R9 280X GAMING 3G

    According to: MSI Radeon R9-280X TwinFrozr Gaming OC review - Product Photos - MSI Radeon R9-280X TwinFrozr Gaming OC it reqiures 1 x 6pin and 1x 8pin PCIx connectors and according to this line:"PCIe PEG connectors native (converting them from a Molex Peripheral connector anno 2012 we feel is a no-go)." adapters from 4 pin Molex are not going to work.

    The 6+2 should work for the 8 pin connector correct?

    Yep, that's what they are made for, there are so many combinations out there so they would have to pack many more separate ones.
