Hi,

I bought a second-hand Gigabyte R9 270C graphics card for my Amiga X1000. Unfortunately, it seems that the card needs 2 PCI-E power cords while the Amiga X1000 had only one packaged with it. The power supply has free 8-pin socket and the other end of the cord has 6 pin socket. It seems it's quite hard to find similar cords here in Finland with the needed length (ca 17 cm / 7 in). I tried to contact Amiga Kit via the web form and email, but I haven't got any answers. Does anyone know where one could find these cords?

you can buy converters, depending on what connection you can spare to turn into a PCI-E 8 pin.

6-Pin PCIe to 8-Pin PCIe Adapter

15-Pin SATA Male to 8-Pin

8-Pin PCIe to Molex (2x) Power Cable - be aware that you need 2 free molex connectors for this to work

These are examples so that you can buy from your prefered site.

Thanks,

I have checked similar here, but unfortunately these seem to be max 10 cm (4 inch) and the anatomy of Amiga X1000 seem to need 17-18 cm minimum.

@Liveforit
Replacing the PSU, you mean one gets the needed power cord with the new PSU? Seems A bit expensive solution, although of course the currently unusable graphics card & Enhancer pack had A price, too.

You can get extension cables for whatever connection type you need.

The links provided do not replace the psu leads, they extend them while at the same time converting, so you have however long your current psu connector is 'plus' 10cm.

it all depends which type of connector you are going to use as to how long it will be in total.
