    Can someone point me where I can get that 6-pin power cable that connects the videocard to the MP motherboard, I remember someone mentioned where one could purchase this cable but I forgot which thread it was.

    You can order them from your local Apple store.

    Are there no direct sales off AMD's Turkish site? :confused:

    If not, you can get them from Svideo.com. They ship internationally at least, so if you can't get it from another source, including the local Apple Store as Cindori mentioned, you still have an option. ;)

    Hope this helps. :)

    I think Applemacanix are overpriced and have no love for them.

    But they do offer those cables for sale and ship internationally.

    Ebay Item # 280374944924

    (Not me...I don't get a commission, etc)

    Would someone please dig through the BIG 4870 thread? I recall posting the Mouser & Molex part #s for these and that someone else posted where these where available in Europe. The parts themselves are under $4 per cable as I recall. You just need nimble fingers and some patience.

    I ordered them from here

    Instead of the above, you can use a regular molex splitter that you can find in any computer store, connect it to the spare molex from the superdrive power cable, and then use the two molex2pcie that comes with the card. But beware because it is really a pain to get the molex splitter through the case holes in order for it to fit. If you get scared easily wait for the cables above to arrive.

    It's in a different thread, but it seems the Molex & a splitter can't handle the power requirements of a 4890. :(
