8-pin PSU problems
Hi guys,

I'd previously asked for some advice here in selecting a GPU for my needs and got some great advice. Thanks!. I've decided to go for the 3080ti to put into my Dell Precision 7810 tower.

I'm running an 825W PSU which I believe is sufficient (http://www.parts-country.com/products/de...ef-02-psu/). However, the 3080ti requires 2 x 8-pin connections which is causing me a few issues.

One of the 8-pin connectors can be made from 2 x 6pin that I have spare. That's the first 8-pin covered.

I'm struggling for the second however. This article https://www.dell.com/community/Precision...-p/7755130 does a good job of explaining things, but I'm not sure I'm fully understanding it.

I'd upgrade my PSU but the 1300W model I need isn't available anywhere. My question is, would buying a second PSU (ATX or any other form factor) and using this to exclusively power the 3080ti work? Could I just ditch my current PSU completely and buy an ATX PSU?

Thanks in advance!
