Hey all

I'm upgrading from a mini GTX 1060 to a GTX 1080. I want to keep using my old PSU for a couple of months before upgrading. It's an old Antec 550W PSU, been super reliable and I haven't had any issues over the years. My main concern is that the connector I have is a single 6 pin since that's what the 1060 needed. Before that my GTX 770 needed a 6+2 Pin, which I can't seem to find. The 1080 needs two 8 pin (or 6+2 pin?) connectors. I'm guessing I can get the proper converter and connectors but I've heard that isn't recommended. My main question is whether I can get by like that for a couple of months before getting a solid PSU. I don't really want to scrape by and get something okay'ish that might actually be unreliable. Pairing it with an i5 7400 if that helps.

Thanks.

Alright, I got my answer. This thing is pretty old and I forgot to mention I've been using molex adaptors to get by all these years. Going to have to upgrade to err on the side of caution.

    probably gonna launch alongside the Switch Pro as a marquee launch title for it
    Wonder if Switch Pro is an official thing or we are just expecting it. Granted I've only played just one game yet, but it doesn't look like Switch needs a hardware upgrade.

    I figure the ultimate one is based on public voting as opposed to critic choice. It should be called people's choice or something cuz Hades is the actual Joystick GOTY.
    Yup, I've categorized them in this manner in the GOTY thread

    np, cyberpunk is projected for Dec 10th (mhmm) you've got half a month, you're already pretty far into the game. But that's the base game, Royal adds a lot of hours more to it.

  • SolitarySoldier SolitarySoldier:
    I've been a bit slow with it and hopefully, it will finish up before Cyberpunk. Thanks for the tips.

    The game doesn't let me progress with Ann since forever.
    Link
  • SolitarySoldier SolitarySoldier:
    Yeah, but I want to do it in case there's further character development locked behind those upgrade cuz I don't know which characters are important in that way. I'm at least focusing on my team.
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    you absolutely don't have to do that, its not mandatory. Not every confidant link is important enough to complete in a single run
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    cool, again that is mostly for completionists who need as much game time as possible to get every confidant maxed out
    Link
  • SolitarySoldier SolitarySoldier:
    My stats are maxed out already except knowledge and guts
    Link
  • SolitarySoldier SolitarySoldier:
    That sounds like an important thing. I'll focus on it. For now, she's just cleaning my room.
    Link
  • SolitarySoldier SolitarySoldier:
    The game is huge and I'm not sure if it's generally a good thing but I guess it doesn't hurt occasionally, especially for someone like me who is more into story and characters.
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    normally if you go to the dungeons, your character doesn't do any night activities, but with her 'services', you are able to do activities in the night time as well, great for going to stat boosting bars etc (or for people who are trying to max out every confidant link in a single play through)
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    ok so one thing about her, max her out as soon as you can, because she will eventually let you use her 'services' and be able to go out at night for activities even on days you have gone to dungeons in
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    jrpgs are not small, and this is a 1.5x re-release of an already mammoth game
    Link
  • SolitarySoldier SolitarySoldier:
    But I maxed her out till the ongoing story. Called her 'services'. Wonder where that will lead. :p

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    im legit glad you're enjoying the big time commitment on the game
