    No, but you *can* run them off molex. Ideally you should get a PSU which is up to the job with these already connected.
    My local hospital has a sign which reads "This way for accidents and emergencies." Haven't people in hospital got enough to worry about without looking for further misfortune?

      depends what connectors they are.

      8pin is 150W
      6pin is 75W

      if you can find the cable you can split a 8pin in to 2 6 pins safely.

        nope, you cant. but if you have enough molex you can use an adaptor on them. Just make sure your psu is strong enough to run 2 graphic cards

          run 1 pci e power to each then make the 2nd(s) up from molex
