I bought a Referb 09 Mac Pro. I purchased a Gigabyte HD Radeon 6850. The Power cable that came with that card is obviously for a PC. I just need to know what cable I need and where I can get it
Thank You for anyones help
I don't think you can use a 6850 in a mac pro. And if it does you would have to flash it for a mac (or maybe not if you don't care seeing video during boot).
What makes the aux power adapter cable "obviously for a PC"?
Well I hope so lol I've read on many Threads on multiple forums that it will work. But I don't have the PCIe Cable to power it from the Logicboard.
PC obvious because its a Y connector that connect to the card + PC power supply.
If it's a 6-pin pcie cable just use one of the y-connectors. Otherwise google "6-pin pcie aux power connector" for any number of sources to buy this.
owc, amazon, even newegg I think (the first two I am sure of) it is the same 6-pin cable used on G5 and has not changed.
