This will work if you are using a lower end video card where you can get away with using only 5 pins. I've tried my ATI 7850 and it did not want to work, not enough juice! Kinda wish Monoprice would have taken a picture of the front of the 6pin connector where you could see only 5 contacts as it would have saved me time and $.
Exactly what I needed and for an amazing price! I was so concentrated on everything else for my new computer I forgot to make sure the power supply had a 6-pin plug for my video card. I had 4 pin adapters but with the new thing is SATA plugs. I was very relieved when I found exactly the adapter I needed and it works perfectly!
PROS: Low Price, Good Quality, Saves you from buying a new power supply with way too many plugs attached.
Just what i needed when i found my computers power supply didnt have 6 pin connectors and sata connections laying around..plugged them in and they work like a charm to power my video card. Thanks again Monoprice
CONS: now if you could put 2 6 pin connectors on this monster not that i need it lol..
This cable saved me from having to buy a whole new power supply when I added a graphics card to my Dell Tower. was easy to install and the price was amazing. Unlike the Molex adapters this one only uses one power plug instead of two.
PROS: Price Ease of Installation Only uses one SATA Power Plug
