Default Re: Computer won't boot up with GTX 280

Man I had to get a new PS for my 280 and it had the 6+2 and the new 8 pin 12v. The new 8 pin 12v connector fit right in to the 280 and I thought that was the right connector. THANK GOD I double check everything before I fire up the pc after making drastic changes !! There was no forcing it it slid right in... I could have easily fried my new card and who knows what else. They need to make that new 8pin mobo connector red and label is as such...

My new ps is a 650 Antec neopower BTW..
Intel i7 2600k @ 4.8ghz 1.35v, 1.40v full load
Cooler Master Hyper 212
Gigabyte 580 @945/2232
4 Gigs Ripjaw @ 1600
Antec (a good one) 650w
