Hi, all i`m currently building a new pc using the dx48bt2 board & i`m bit unsure on whether I should plug in the auxillary power connector or not. The instruction manual says this is only required if your using PCI cards that need more than 75W of power & i`m going to install a XFX GTX260 black edition along with a X-fi elite pro sound card with the external sound thingy. I`m unsure because XFX only tells me that I need at least a 650w power supply!
Heres my full specs: Antec Skeleton case, Antec Quattro 850W PSU, Intel dx48bt2 m/b, Intel Q9650CPU, 4gb Crucial Tracer DDR3, XFX GTX260 Black edition(O.C), Creative SB X-Fi elite Pro, Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB, LG GH220 DVDRW
Stuff it, i`ll just plug it in & if it goes bang, i`ll buy a new board! I really want to fire it up & play with it.
