    There was a thread awhile back that provided a link for someplace that sold a cable that went from the special power connector that's on a mac pro's mobo to a normal 6 Pin MOLEX adapter on a video card. Does anyone have this handy?

    Thanks!

    I did a quick search, and the third post had this:

    "i bought a 6pin pcie power plug from Fry's for 3.99 and connected that to my 2nd CD-rom drive power. (i'm looking to get the actually apple cord that connects directly to the motherboard). but for the time being it works great."

    Hope that's what you were lookin' for. Fry's is online at outpost.com, btw.

    Thats the one you were looking for, and in case you want the actual cable that plugs into the mobo, I found this in another thread (it does look just like the one that came with my x1900)

    Thanks, that's it!

    On another note, anyone want to buy a very very slightly used 7300 GT? I still have the original box and adapter for it. Taking offers. :)

    And I just bought one anyway.

    I'm writing a bad review of them for gouging us, though!

    Yea, NewEgg went out of stock on the open boxes so I never got one. Between the cost of a refurbished X1900XT and that gold encrusted caviar filled dongle I would only save $20 flashing myself. (Versus buying from Apple's ADC Store), so I went that route.

    welovemacs.com is out of stock on those cables.

    I canceled my order and am looking for somewhere else ($30 is steep as hell anyway).

    Anyone know of any place?
