So there is still hope at the end of the tunnel for my upgrade hehe. Ok, just so I get this right - I can buy a converter that will transform my one unused 6P connector into a fully-fledged 8P one? So in the end, I will be able to run the 280 with just my two 6P connectors (one regular 6P and one 6P converted to 8P), correct? If yes, what exactly is such a converter called and is it carried by regular computer stores like tigerdirect?
